Development of MCP based particle detector


  • Mr. Mikhail BARNYAKOV

Primary authors



A time-of-flight detector based on microchannel plates (MCP) is under development. The main goal of this work is the creation of a radiation hard large area detector providing 10 ps time resolution in strong magnetic field. The conceptual detector design consists of

  • VUV transparent Cherenkov radiator placed inside a vacuum tight metal-ceramic volume,
  • semitransparent CsI photocathode evaporated onto radiator surface,
  • an array of small pore MCPs arranged in chevron configuration,
  • segmented anode with 1 cm pitch.

The details of the detector design and the status of the development are reported.
