The Development of Large-Area psec Photodetectors
||Location is Madrone room.
While there have been major advances in large-area detectors with very high spatial resolution, until recently the state-of-the-art of time-of-flight had not changed much in decades. I will describe a large-area micro-channel-plate-based detector with RF strip-line anodes and wave-form sampling digitization being developed by the LAPPD Collaboration. These detectors should, we hope, be able to provide space-time points at the appropriate resolutions for use in collider detectors, rare kaon experiments, neutrino experiments, X-ray detection, and medical imaging.

||Henry Frisch received his B.A. degree from Harvard in 1966 and his
Ph.D from UC Berkeley in 1971. He has been on the faculty at the
Univ. of Chicago working at Fermilab since 1971. His work on the CDF
experiment at the Tevatron specialized in precision measurements of
the W and Z bosons and the search for the top quark. Following the top
quark discovery he has focused on developing signature-based searches
for new physics at the Tevatron, emphasizing signatures with vector
bosons and 3rd-generation generation quarks. His interest in fast
timing stems from the possibility of expanding the universe of such
signatures by adding parton identification to the attributes of
signatures. It has turned out that there are interesting new things
to learn in other areas too.
