The KLOE-2 experiment aims to continue the successful program of KLOE, that collected 2.5 fb⁻¹ of integrated luminosity between 2001 and 2006 at DAΦNE, the φ-factory at the Frascati National Laboratory of INFN, fulfilling a vast set of precision kaon and hadron physics measurements. One of the major upgrades of the apparatus is the extension of the tracking system with the insertion of a ce ... More

Cascaded Gas Electron Multipliers (GEM) allow to construct detectors for charge particles tracking with high spatial resolution and rate capability. Such detectors can withstand high background fluxes up to 10⁵ particles/mm²/s and determine track coordinates with precision of 50-70 micron. These remarkable features of GEM govern the use of this technology in a number of experiments at the Bud ... More

The LHCb muon system consists of more than a thousand gas detectors, mostly MWPC, located in five different stations. The muon detector is used to define the muon trigger and to identify muons at the reconstruction stage. The first station of the muon detector, located in front of the calorimetric system, is made of 274 chambers. The 12 most irradiated chambers, the ones closer to the beam pipe, a ... More

CERN PCB workshop is involved since more than a decade in the production of MPGD devices. The main part of the presentation will be an overview of the present situation of large size MPGD production at CERN and also in industry. At the end of the talk some preliminary ideas for single board gas detector production and motivation will be presented as well as special new devices (multi-layer conica ... More

In fundamental research, gas detectors of single photons are a must in the field of Cherenkov imaging techniques (RICH counters) for particle identification in large momentum ranges and with wide coverage of the phase space domain. These counters, already extensively used, are foreseen in the setups of future experiments in a large variety of fields in nuclear and particle physics. The quest of ... More

We will present the status and the plans of the micromegas detector project for the upgrade of the ATLAS muon system in the next long LHC shutdown in 2018. The project consists of the construction of 1200 m² of micromegas detectors, with single detector elements of 2-3 m² area each, and their instrumentation with readout electronics based on a novel chip developed for this purpose. The detector ... More

Driven by the availability of modern photolithographic techniques, the Micro Pattern Gas Detectors (MPGD) have been introduced in the last years of the 20th century by pioneer activities: Gas Electron Multipliers (GEM) and Micromegas, later followed by thick-GEM, resistive GEM (RETGEM) and novel micro-pattern devices. Nowadays, a flourishing of R&D activities dedicated to MPGDs and of diversified ... More

Gas-based tracking devices are currently undergoing a revival: with the advent of MPGDs (such as Micromegas, GEM, InGrid ...) spatial resolutions of 50μm and better have become commonplace. MGPDs are in addition light, well suited to cover large areas with, and affordable. Traditionally, gas-based detectors are simulated by integrating field gradients and transport tables. This technique is not ... More

The CMS collaboration considers upgrading the muon forward region which is particularly affected by the high-luminosity conditions at the LHC. The proposal involves Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) chambers, which are able to handle the extreme particle rates expected in this region along with a high spatial resolution. This allows to combine tracking and triggering capabilities, which will improve t ... More
