Abstract The barrel-Time-of-Flight detector is one of the outer layers of the multi-layer design of the PANDA target spectrometer. PANDA, which is being built at the FAIR facility, will use cooled antiprotons on a fixed Hydrogen or nuclei target, to study broad topics in hadron physics. The detector is designed to achieve a time resolution below 100 ps and provides the interaction times of events as well as the particle ID. The B-TOF is designed with a minimal material budget in mind mainly cons...

Abstract The Barrel-Time-of-Flight detector is one of the outer layers in the multi-layer design of the P anda target spectrometer, covering a polar angle region of 22 ° θ l a b 150 ° . P anda , which is being built at the FAIR facility, will use cooled antiprotons on a Hydrogen or nuclei target, to study a variety of topics in hadron physics. The detector is a scintillating tile hodoscope with an SiPM readout. A single unit consists of a 90 × 30 × 5 mm 3 fast plastic scintillator tile and 3 × 3...

Abstract The PANDA experiment is a fixed target experiment in which antiprotons collide with stationary hydrogen atoms. The main physics program of the experiment is to study open questions in hadron physics by performing charmonium spectroscopy and precisely measuring the width, mass and decay branches, and investigating possible exotic states like glueballs and hybrids. The Barrel Time-of-Flight detector (Barrel TOF), located between the DIRC detector and the electromagnetic calorimeter (EMC),...

The \(\bar{\text{ P }}\)ANDA experiment at FAIR in Darmstadt will perform a fixed target experiment by using a cooled beam of antiprotons in the momentum range between 1.5 to 15 GeV/c to study open questions in hadron physics. The core program comprises charmonium spectroscopy with precision measurement of mass, width and decay branches, investigation of possible exotic states, search for modifications of charmed hadrons in nuclear matter and \(\gamma \)-ray spectroscopy of hypernuclei.

Abstract The ASPECT consortium (Adaptable Spectrometer Enabled by Cryogenic Technology) is currently constructing a generalised cryogenic platform for cryogenic detector work which will be able to accommodate a wide range of sensors. The cryogenics system is based on a small mechanical cooler with a further adiabatic demagnetisation stage and will work with cryogenic detectors at sub-Kelvin temperatures. The commercial aim of the consortium is to produce a compact, user-friendly device with an e...

We report the successful commissioning and testing of a dedicated field-ioniser chamber for measuring principal quantum number distributions in antihydrogen as part of the ASACUSA hyperfine spectroscopy apparatus. The new chamber is combined with a beam normalisation detector that consists of plastic scintillators and a retractable passivated implanted planar silicon (PIPS) detector.

Photodetectors with excellent time resolution are becoming increasingly important in many applications in medicine, high energy- and nuclear physics applications, biology, and material science. Silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) are a novel class of solid-state photodetectors with good timing properties. While the time resolution of analog SiPMs has been analyzed by many groups, the time resolution of the digital photon counter (DPC) developed by Philips has not yet been fully characterised. Here, ...

Abstract The barrel time-of-flight detector for the PANDA experiment at FAIR is foreseen as a Scintillator Tile (SciTil) Hodoscope based on several thousand small plastic scintillator tiles read-out with directly attached Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs). The main tasks of the system are an accurate determination of the time origin of particle tracks to avoid event mixing at high collision rates, relative time-of-flight measurements as well as particle identification in the low momentum regime. ...
