Description

The endcap portion of the CMS MIP Timing Detector (MTD), denoted the Endcap Timing Layer (ETL), will be instrumented with silicon-based low gain avalanche detectors (LGADs). We present the status of recent R&D efforts for LGADs, with a focus on sensor characterization from bench tests and dedicated test beams, and including studies of time resolution, geometry, doping, and uniformity, along with a discussion of future plans.
