The Development of Large-Area psec Photodetectors

Abstract: 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.

Speaker Bio: 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.
