The CMS-TOTEM Precision Proton Spectrometer (CT-PPS) project will add in the next months tracking and timing detectors in Roman pots (RP) positioned on either side of CMS, at about 210 m from the interaction point. CT-PPS allows the measurement of forward leading protons, opening the possibility of detailed studies of diffractive physics and central exclusive production in standard LHC running...
Modern cancer treatments have become increasingly more sophisticated in the past years and therefore require a real-time, reliable radiation dose monitoring system in treatment planning and monitoring, with high spatial resolution. Silicon microdosimeters are excellent candidates as they are small in size and have high spatial resolution. The ease of coupling them to readout electronics makes...
Advances in the laser assisted transformation of diamond into amorphous-carbon has enabled the production of a new type of particle detector - 3D diamond.
When compared to conventional planar technologies, previous work has proven a 3D geometry to improve the radiation tolerance of detectors fabricated in silicon.
This work demonstrates the same principle in diamond, with the aim of producing...
We have measured the pulse height and spatial resolution in 3D detectors
constructed with single-crystal and poly-crystalline CVD diamond. The work
using single-crystal diamond was performed in 2014 and published in 2015.
Since our first results we have constructed 3D detectors using poly-crystalline
diamond. Our results indicate that the 3D geometry allowed us for the first
time to collect...
