Low Gain Avalanche Diode (LGAD) technology has been used to design and construct prototype and full size detector systems for applications requiring simultaneous time and spatial precision. For these purposes a dedicated LGAD strip sensor production has been conducted at FBK with different strip geometries and sizes.
This contribution will review a wide variety of LGAD applications ranging from the reaction time detector for experiments utilizing proton and pion beams with the High Acceptance Di-Electron Spectrometer (HADES), at GSI Darmstadt, Germany, to beam structure monitoring at the S-DALINAC at TU Darmstadt, operated in energy recovery mode, and medical applications at MedAustron. In addition, a prospect of further upgrade projects at GSI and FAIR will be given.
