Application of CLEO III track finding to a TPC

Cornell Linear Collider Detector Research Cornell Interests: The Cornell group proposes to contribute to development of charged particle tracking for the the N. American Large Detector design. Detector Development (in collaboration with Purdue University ) (funding requested through UCLC) Personnel: R. S. Galik J. Miyamoto (Purdue) D. Peterson I. P. J. Shipsey (Purdue) & students Event Reconstruction, Pattern Recognition ( funding through the LEPP base grant) D. Peterson, Cornell Univ., Round table 23-Jan-2003 Charged Particle Tracking at the Linear Collider The challenges: Momentum resolution pt/pt=4 x 10-5/Gev (can be achieved with) 2 meter outer radius detector, 3 Tesla 120 m spatial resolution 10 m intermediate detector at R=0.4 m 10 m vertex detector

Track density, Reconstruction efficiency 100 tracks/steradian full efficiency for energy flow 5% occupancy goal requires 1/2000 ster. segmentation example: 1.25cm(r-) x 1cm(z) at 50cm(R) Schematic quarter-section of the N. American Large Detector including a 2 m radius Time Projection Chamber. Noise density 1% by volume requires more segmentation D. Peterson, Cornell Univ., Round table 23-Jan-2003 Detector Development, issues GEM/MicroMegas amplification read-outs are expected to have advantages over traditional anode-amplification read-outs. Signals are due to electron transport, rather than induction. The signal width is narrow, typically 1 mm, or less, providing improved segmentation and resolution. ExB effects, present with anode-wire-amplification, are minimized; an improvement in resolution is expected. GEM readout: amplification is

localized in the GEM holes. Signal is due to electron transport. But, there are many outstanding issues. Resolution: How do we balance resolution with the size of the readout ? GEM/MicroMegas signals may be small compared to the pad width. minimal charge sharing e.g. 5mm () x 1cm (r) pads ( 500 thousand pads ) The resolution, without charge sharing, is 1.4mm (require < 120 m). e.g. 1mm () x 1cm (r) pads ( 2.4 million pads ! ) provides charge sharing The resolution may be sufficient but number of channels is prohibitive. While the electron transport signal is fundamentally narrower than the induction signal, sufficient ( anticipated ) resolution, in a TPC, has not been demonstrated. D. Peterson, Cornell Univ., Round table 23-Jan-2003 Detector Development, Cornell/Purdue Program Systematic study spatial resolution and signal width using GEM/MicroMegas TPC readout devices amplification device, details of spacings and gain, pad size and shape gas applied signal isolation/spreading (Signal may require spreading in and isolation in R.) Signal spreading must be optimized for segmentation and resolution. Spatial resolution and signal width studies using traditional anode-wire-amplification read-out devices Investigate a readout using smaller wire spacing to reduce the ExB effects.
