Description

The tracking performance of the current generation of charged-particle tracker systems is often limited by the use of the present bulky sensing
technologies and wired links for transmitting the detector's data. We will present here a road-map towards a light-weight, high-resolution post-LHC
tracking system based on the emerging Low Gain Avalanche Detectors (LGAD detectors) a promising position-sensitive-detector (PSD) technology with intrinsic
signal gain proposed a few years ago by the IMB-CNM radiation detection group (one of the participating institution of this contribution). This enabling technology should allow the manufacturing of very thin PSD sensors while preserving a high Signal-to-Noise ratio; moreover, high-resolution time stamping of the tracking information is possible.The intrinsic characteristics of these detectors may be also applied to develop new electron detection schemes at x-ray free electron lasers and other pulsed sources.

Additionally, we will tackle the wireless transmission of the acquired data and, the more challenging, wireless power distribution to avoid the material burden created by the now existing wired links. Coping with this ambitious challenge will require of the emerging know-how from outside of the academic sector provided by ERZIA Technologies expertise on dedicated wireless datalinks as well as engineering research institutes such as ITAINNOVA, expert on EMC and complex power systems.
