Photodetector Development 1: TOP SEAL: glass sidewall to window- consider proven Recipe (lots of characterization, vendor/ Ossy input) 1. Very clean glass surfaces 2. 200 nm of Nichrome 3. 200 nm of Cu w no vacuum break 4. .9999 Indium wire sized for volume 5. Etch Indium wire in 5% HCl 6. Thermal cycle 100C above melting 7. Press down on window edges w DOF What happens: (Andrey Elagin FIB/SEM/ studies) (ITT story) 1. Nichrome layer will provide tie layer 2. Cu provides protection against oxide on NiCr 3. Indium wire gets squished--oxide broken (Walters) 4. Cu diffuses into bulk Indium (Ossy said so) 5. Nickel and Chrome diffuse into bulk Indium (!) 6. A very thin layer containing chrome on the glass 5

forms the bond to the indium. Photodetector Development TOP SEAL- continued The LAPPD size introduces 3 serious problems not experienced in making smaller tubes: 1. Uniform metalization, indium distribution, and cleanliness over a much longer length (~36) 2. Uniform pressure and heating over that length 3. In a transfer process base sealing surface level to a mil or less (?-number I dont know, as we use wire captured in place between the window and sidewall) And, a precise STACK HEIGHT over entire tile. 1. FEA and many trials dictate a stack height low by 0.0020.0005 over the tile interior

2. Each button spacer has to be custom shimmed to meet the above 3. Pressing uniformly on the edges over the seal area on all 4 sides is essential Note buttons make stack height a discrete problem 6 Photodetector Development 2: Capacitively coupled anode w. external signal pickup 1. Metal layer rather than thick-film for production during seal layer coating (also realities of thick-film) 2. 10nm of NiCr is resistive enough for RC (capacitive) coupling

Our university group complement s Incoms commercial focus on production of their glass tile design in 2 ways: 1. Develop physics applications (e.g. OTPC; later in talk) 2. Evolutionary design options- (but dont get in their way on the Gen-I glass tile while working on Gen-II!) 2. Have developed a `Green-trimmed ceramic tile base with the following advantages: 1. One piece- no assembly of sidewall and base w. frit 2. Hotter bake-out possible as no frit or silver ink anode 3. Higher bandwidth than glass (also no ion migration) 4. More robust than glass 5. Working closely with Mike Foley of Incom under a

DOE Nuclear Physics SBIR Disadvantages: long lead-times, no experience (vs glass) 11 Photodetector Development 3: Ceramic robust high-bandwidth 1-piece tile base Sidewall and anode plane are green-trimmed and then ground to spec after full fire- no fritted or brazed large (long) joint Ceramic tile bases from 4 vendors- have 5 from each

12 Photodetector Development 3: Ceramic robust high-bandwidth 1-piece tile base Multipurpose metallizing (coating) glass or ceramic 1. Major roadblock for both 200/200 nm NiCr/Cu seal surface glass and ceramic (surprise!)- source of a lot of delay working out 2. Expert territory only: Eileen Hahn (Fermilab), Sharon Jelinsky (SSL), Bing Xu (ANL), commercial 10 nm NiCr anode precision optical coaters (2 vendors) 3. Here we use coating for

sealing surfaces, capacitively-coupled anode, and connection to pins to interior- single process (no vacuum break between sealing layers) 4. Now have 2 good vendors+ NiCr/Cu anode border 13 Photodetector Development 4: Batch production process/facility development (w. Incom)

Conventional PMTs are (usually) made in batches, using the hermetic package as the UHV environment PMT Process Characteristics 1. Many tubes on one pump 2. Very poor external vacuum- Oring seal on tubulation, small long path to small pump. Internal getter+alkali provide the UHV pumping 3. External oven heating only tube (not vessel) 4. Alkali source internal or external (Brits) 5. Tubes are accessible during photocathod 14 synthesis

Photodetector Development Batch production process/facility development (w. Incom) Schedule from a serious proposal by industry at the time of DUSEL For HEP use we estimate industry needs to make 50/week (2000/yr; 6000/postdoc). Not nuts- had a serious proposal for DUSEL-from a large company making a similar photodevice . However went down with DUSEL as well. 15 Necessary to get price down, adequate availablity.

Attenkofer ; Luca Cultrera) K2CsSb powder diffraction of RMD cathode material taken at UC Agenda of 2nd cathode workshop at UC Collaboration with BNL and RMD, and also Cornell, on `theory-based cathodes and workshops led to: a) ties to the cathode community , and the in-situ initiative 17 Photodetector Development In-situ photocathode synthesis (Springer, Sinclair) Idea is to emulate RCA/Burle PMT production

Steps: 1. Coat (NiCr/Cu) border and electrode fingers on window 2. Pre-deposit a 10nm Antimony (Sb) layer overlapping border and fingers 3. Seal window to tile base with a bake-out/sealing thermal cycle: dual vacuum- 1) tile and 2) vessel 4. Bring vessel to air, leaving sealed tile on its pump 5. Introduce alkali vapor through tubulation while measuring QE of (exposed) window and resistance of MCP plates and stack 6. Pinch off tubulation when photocathode is done We have used a `GodParent Committee (CDF) to guide us: Klaus Attenkofer (BNL), Luca Cultrera (Cornell), Jeff Elam (ANL), Mike Pellin (ANL), Matt Poelker (JLAB), 18 Charlie Sinclair (Cornell, SLAC), John Smedley (BNL),Gary Varner (Hawaii, Chair) Photodetector Development

In-situ photocathode synthesis (Springer, Sinclair) GPs recommended doing only Cs first Expect uniformity to be determined by thickness of Sb layer- should very uniform 01/31/2020 CPAD Albuquerque 2017 19 Photodetector Development In-situ photocathode synthesis (Springer, Sinclair) Successes We have learned how to manipulatethe movement of Cs

around inside the system (remember were beginners) Vapor reached everywhere on the window- uniform Chemical reaction between Cs and Sb seems to be `selflimiting as expected- reaches a defined end-point QE seems to be consistent with reasonable Cs3Sb cathode, but we cannot measure it precisely yet (subtlety I missed completely- can explain if asked in questions) MCP plates are not permanently damaged/changed Problems discovered: MCP plates go to lower resistance (recoverable in air) We had exposed Cu on the window- Indium wet it. Cs interacts with Indium to form a black powder. Resistive buttons interact with Cs (new buttons yesterday) Measuring QE is made more difficult by our internal HV divider (cant get current across first gap directly). 20 In-Situ Cathode Synthesis Trials in Progress E.g. The black powder from

cesiating excess indium Sealing surface on top of sidewall Black powder NiCr anode Evan (FIB/SEM ) and Andrey (SEM) Analysis showing its a CsIn

CPAD Albuquerque 2017 22 The Original Motivation: I GotTired of @#$! Jets Goals: 1) Measure all 4-vectors can reconstruct masses 2) assign tracks to vertices (e.g. CMS forward Ecal.) 3) vertex photons at colliders (4-vectors!) ; Aside: Use photons (and electrons) as reference timei.e. do differential timing of tracks from the same vertex to eliminate external clock jitter

CDF top quark event 01/31/2020 See Aspen talk, Jan 2003 ( 23 Three Timing Cases to Distinguish The factors limiting the ultimate timing resolution are different in each of the following cases: 1. Single optical photons (Scintillation or Cherenkov) 2. Charged Particles above Cherenkov Threshold(H2O,glass) 3. Electromagnetic showers from High Energy photons I will focus on #2 and #3, relativistic charged particles and high energy photons, for which psec or sub-psec time

resolutions I believe are plausible given certain detection criteria are met. Note: In what follows I treat time and space distances in the same units, i.e. c=1, and 1 psec =300 microns; 1 nsec =1000 psec; 1 nsec =1 foot 01/31/2020 24 Criteria for Sub-Psec Timing-1 Fast Source: A psec source in time-space of many photons in a time-space interval (example: Cherenkov light from a charged particle traversing a radiator or the entrance window of a photodetector ); e, mu, pi, K, p, Cherenkov photons

( Or early in an electromagnetic shower such as in a preradiator or EM calorimeter ( separate discussion)); 01/31/2020O 25 Criteria for Sub-Psec Timing-2 Psec-level pixel size (example: 10-20 micron pores in an MCP plate) e, mu, pi, K, p, 10-20 micron pore 01/31/2020O 26 Criteria for Sub-Psec Timing-3

High gain: The gain has to be high enough that a single photon triggers, i.e. the first photon in determines the leading edge of the pulse and consequently the timing. N.B. NOT 1/sqrt(N) e, mu, pi, K, p, Amplification section: Gain-bandwidth, Signal-to-Noise, Power, Cost (eg: two-stages of MgO MCPs give gain >107) 01/31/2020O 27 Signal-to-Noise, Rise-time Dependences Long discussions at UC/ANL /France workshops of dependence on analog bandwidth, gain, noise, digitization methods, etc. ; Answer (S. Ritt) is that at the level of present performance,

using waveform sampling, the achievable time resolution is well-described by three parameters: 1) analog band-width (aka rise-time); 2) signal-to-noise; and 3) the sampling rate (assuming sufficient number of bits not to limit). Show Stefan Ritts Rule-of-Thumb. For a sampling rate proportional to analog bandwidth its only 2 parameters. 01/31/2020 28 Breaking the 1-Psec Barrier? Stefan Ritt (PSI) table from 2nd Chicago Photocathode Workshop (annotated) (see psec.uchicago/edu/library) Signal LAPPD: 1V

Noise 0.7 mv Sampling Bandwidth Resolution 1.5 GHz ? 15 GS/sec ?? ! Before 100 fsec something else will surely bite us, but still 01/31/2020 29

Present (now old) Time Resolution Single Photo-electron PSEC4 Waveform sampling Sigma=44 psec Differential Time Resolution Large signal Limit Oscilloscope Readout Black line is y=3.1x+0.5 (ps) Red line is y=2.8x +1.5 (ps) Where the constant term represents the large S/N limit (0.5-1.5 ps) Highly non-optimized system (!)- could do much better 01/31/2020

30 Timing res. agrees with MC < 6 psec Laser spot size 01/31/2020 Time resolution on 2 ends of 8-anode strip vs (S/N)-1 in psec (pair of 8 MCPs) M. Wetstein, B. Adams, A. Elagin, R. Obaid, A. Vostrikov, 31 Opinion, pure and simple (why not)

Next round of big collider detectors Should measure 4-vectors of all tracks up to (say ) PT= 25 GeV using ultra-fast TOF Should vertex all particles using ultra-fast TOF, including photons For ultra-fast TOF need small pixels, high gain, and lots of photons in a coherent localized pulse. 01/31/2020 CPAD Albuquerque 2017 32 John Lindsley (air-shower array pioneer, with Bruno Rossi at MIT).

A Plea As money gets tight we naturally pull back from risk and disruptive technologies. However the big gains in our exploratory

capabilities have come from new things- often not easy- e.g. the TPC and silicon vertex detectors (I was on a godparent committee that approved Aldo Menziones for CDF). We should aim for a portfolio of risk judiciously and thoughtfully chosen; but we should fight the shutting down either new initiatives or career paths for young physicists interested in new ideas. (N.B. not a plea for my program per se- much broader and more important to the future of US basic science)38 01/31/2020 CPAD Albuquerque 2017
