Speaker

Mr Aleksandr Dmitriev (Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (RU))

Description

The obsolete left-right time-of-flight system (TOF-LR) of the hadron spectrometer NA61/SHINE require upgrades due to significant ageing of scintillators, photo-multipliers, power supplies as well as the outdated readout electronics and cables. New TOF detectors based on multi-gap resistive plate chambers (MRPC) for the NICA experiments are proposed as a replacement.
The progress on design and development of new TOF system for NA61/SHINE experiment will be presented in the report.
