To cope with High luminosity conditions of HL-LHC, the ATLAS pixel
detectors has to be upgraded to be fully efficient in harsh radiation
environment with a good granularity, a maximised geometrical
acceptance and an high read out rate.
LPNHE, FBK and INFN are involved in the development of thin and edgeless
planar pixel sensors in which the insensitive area at the border of
the sensor is...
At present most experiments at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
are planning upgrades in the next 5-10 years for their innermost
tracking layers as well as luminosity monitors to be able to take data
as the luminosity increases and CERN moves toward the High Luminosity-LHC
(HL-LHC). These upgrades will most likely require more radiation
tolerant technologies than exist today. As a result...
In this contribution I will review the progress towards the development of a novel type of silicon detectors suited for tracking with a picosecond timing resolution, the so called Ultra-Fast Silicon Detectors.
The goal is to create a new family of particle detectors merging excellent position and timing resolution with GHz counting capabilities, very low material budget, radiation resistance,...
Due to their capability to cope with very high rates in very harsh radiation environments, hybrid silicon detectors have been the preferred option to track particles in high energy physics experiments. However, their large material thickness, together with their laborious and expensive assembly process, have motivated the pursuit of a new generation of thin and cost-efficient position...
