New Opportunities with Large-Area Picosecond Photo-Detectors

HEP Seminar

Abstract: Large-area picosecond photo-detectors (LAPPDTM) are 20×20 cm2 MCP-based photo-detectors that are capable of picosecond-level time resolution and sub-millimeter position resolution. I will discuss  applications of the correlated space-time measurements in particle physics ranging from particle identification by time-of-flight to searches for neutrinoless double decay. I will report on the present status of the development of LAPPD. In particular, I will focus on the Gen-II LAPPD, which has a monolithic ceramic  detector base with an anode capacitively coupled through a thin metal film to an application-specific readout pattern outside of the vacuum package.
