Developments for a digital TPC : the SiTPC project
Presented by Paul COLAS on 13 Mar 2006 from 11:25 to 11:50
Session: Tracking and Vertexing
Track: Tracking and Vertexing
Results and simulations of a TPC with an endplate with a Micromegas or a GEM amplification followed by a readout by a VLSI CMOS chip Medipix2 will be presented. The steps in progress towards the realisation of a sizeable prototype, within the EUDET program, will be presented: improvement of the protection against breakdown, integration of the Micromegas grid onto the wafer (InGrid), and design of the Timepix chip provided with a timing and/or time-over-threshold capability.
