GEM detectors have been successfully used in modern nuclear and particle physics experiments. The key to the GEM application at large-scale experiments is cost-effective realization of large-size detectors, in which development of GEM detector assembly techniques plays a key role. The detector group at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) has been conducting intensive R&D on la ... More

To cope with the increased background induced hit rate of up to ~15 kHz/cm$^2$ in the innermost stations of the muon endcap system of the ATLAS experiment after the high-luminosity upgrade of the LHC, the currently used precision detectors will be replaced by resistive strip Micromegas in 2019. In the "New Small Wheel" the Micromegas will be arranged in two times four detection layers built of ... More

ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment), taking data at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), uses a Time Projection Chamber (TPC) to provide tracking and particle identification of charged particles in the central barrel. This TPC is the largest TPC built so far (almost $90\textrm{m}^3$ volume) and - while operated in a 0.5T magnetic field - provides a momentum resolution of $\textrm{d}p/p=1\%$ ( ... More

Micro-pattern gaseous detectors (MPGDs) allow operation at very high background particle flux with high efficiency and spatial resolution. This combination of parameters determines the main application of these detectors in particle physics experiments: precise tracking in the areas close to the beam and in the end-cap regions of general purpose detectors. MPGDs of different configurations have ... More

Large size resistive Micromegas (MM) detectors will be employed for the first time in high-energy physics experiments for the phase-1 Muon Spectrometer upgrade of the ATLAS experiment at CERN / LHC. The current innermost stations of the muon endcap system, the Small Wheel, will be upgraded in 2019 to retain the good precision tracking and trigger capabilities in the high background environment e ...

Currently m$^2$-sized micropattern detectors with spatial resolution better than 100 $\mu$m and online trigger capability are of big interest for many experiments. Large size in combination with superb spatial resolution and trigger capability implicates that the construction of these detectors is highly sophisticated and imposes strict mechanical tolerances. We developed a method to survey as ... More

The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment at the future Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Darmstadt, Germany is designed to explore the QCD phase diagram in the region of moderate baryon densities. This will only be possible with the application of advanced instrumentation, including highly segmented and fast gaseous detectors. Keeping in mind the high interaction rate at FA ... More

The muon system of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the LHC is currently uninstrumented at pseudorapidity higher than |η|= 2.4. Therefore, the installation of a chamber in that position would allow track reconstruction beyond the calorimeter at higher pseudorapidity, increasing the muon system's acceptance and improving the tagging of high-eta muons, besides improving muon trigger. M ... More

The KLOE-2 experiment started its data taking campaign in November 2014 with an upgraded tracking system at the DAΦNE electron-positron collider at the Frascati National Laboratory of INFN. The new tracking device, the Inner Tracker, operated together with the KLOE-2 Drift Chamber, has been installed to improve track and vertex reconstruction capabilities of the experimental apparatus. The Inn ... More

The R&D on the micro-Resistive-WELL (μ-RWELL) detector technology aims in developing a new scalable, compact, spark-protected, single amplification stage Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors (MPGD) for large area HEP applications as tracking and calorimeter device as well as for industrial and medical applications as X-ray and neutron imaging gas pixel detector. The novel micro-structure, exploiting sever ... More

A cylindrical GEM detector is under development, to serve as an upgraded inner tracker at the BESIII spectrometer. It will consist of three layers of cylindrically-shaped triple GEMs surrounding the interaction point. The experiment is taking data at the e$^{+}$e$^{-}$ collider BEPCII in Beijing (China) and the GEM tracker will be installed in 2018. <br /> Tests on the performances of triple GEMs ... More
