Description

Dear Colleagues,

we would like to bring to your attention that the next RD51 Collaboration Meeting will take place by Vidyo remote connection between 22nd and 26th June 2020. In addition to the WG sessions, a lecture program is organised.

We are looking forward to seeing you remotely!

Best regards,

Silvia and Leszek.

    • 9:00 AM 12:00 PM
      WG5 - Electronics for MPGD
      Conveners: Hans Muller , Jochen Kaminski (Universitaet Bonn (DE))
      • 9:00 AM
        Advanced Time over Threshold method of charge measuring for time-of-flight and calorimetric applications 25m

        Modified Time over Threshold (TOT) method by charge and amplitude measurements use analog sine pulse shaper. The Time-Of-Flight front-end electronics for HADES (GSI, Germany) experiment based on modified TOT method are presented. The sine pulse shaper made it possible to reduce the error of the TOT method and ensure the uniqueness of the charge spectrum. With a response threshold of 35 mV, the amplitude range of measurements reaches 20 V with an accuracy of 0.35%. New experience of using especially modified TOT FEE for RPC applications with 1mV threshold range for BM&N (JINR, Dubna, Russia) presented too. Particular attention is paid to the study of the accuracy parameters of the modified by analog sine pulse shaper TOT method.

        On the space resolution of the u-RWELL 20m

        In MPGD detectors evaluation of the space resolution with the charge
        centroid (CC) method provides large uncertainty when the impinging
        particle is not perpendicular to the readout plane. An improvement of
        the position reconstruction, and thus of the space resolution, is
        represented by the uTPC algorithm. In this work we report the
        application of this algorithm to the u-Resistive WELL detector.
        Moreover a combination of the CC method with the uTPC algorithm is
        proposed, showing an almost uniform resolution over a wide angular range.
