LHCb will undergo a major upgrade during the LHC long shutdown in 2019/2020 to cope with increased instantaneous luminosities and to implement a trigger-less 40 MHz readout. The current inner and outer tracking detectors will be replaced by a single homogeneous detector based on plastic scintillating fibres (SciFi). The SciFi tracker covers an area of 340 m2 by using more than 10,000 km of...
The Mu3e experiment will search for the rare neutrinoless lepton flavor
violating mu+ -> e+e+e- decay and it aims at reaching an ultimate sensitivity
of 10^-16 on this branching ratio. The experiment will be performed at PSI
using the most intense continuous surface muon beam in the world (presently
~1x10^8 mu/s). In order to reach this sensitivity all backgrounds must be
rejected below this...
The RICH-1 Detector of the COMPASS Experiment at CERN SPS has been upgraded in 2016: four new Photon Detectors, based on MPGD technology and covering an active area of 1.4 square meters replace the previously used photon detectors (MWPCs with CsI photocathodes). The new detector architecture consists in a hybrid MPGD combination: two layers of THGEMs, the first of which also acts as a...
