The Front-end Electronics for the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment
Presented by Prof. Zheng WANG on 11 Jun 2011 from 14:00 to 14:30
Type: Oral Presentation
Session: Front-end Electronics
Track: Front-end Electronics
The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment will consist of seventeen separate detector subsystems distributed in three underground experimental halls. There will be eight PMT based anti-neutrino detectors (ADs), six water-Cherenkov detectors, and three RPC detector subsystems. Each detector will be read out using an independent VME crate. The PMT front-end electronics (FEE) board will be used to read out the ADs and the water Cherenkov detectors. The RPC detector readout includes Front-end Cards (FEC) connected to a VME Read Out Module (ROM) through a number of Read Out Transceiver (ROT) modules. A detailed design along with current status of the front-end electronics will be presented.
