In the talk recent progress in particle identification methods will be reviewed. The survey of present experience with Cherenkov detectors used for particle identification in various particle physics experiments will be presented and planed upgrades of existing devices will be discussed. We will also review particle identification by state-of-the-art detectors based on time-of-flight, dE/dx...

The RICH-1 Detector of the COMPASS Experiment at CERN SPS provides high quality hadron identification in the particle momentum range from 3 to 60 GeV/c, covering a wide angular acceptance and operating at high rates. It is in operation since 2002 and its performance increased thanks to progressive optimization and to a major upgrade of its photon detection system, implemented in 2006; a new...

Particle identification system based on aerogel threshold Cherenkov counters ASHIPH (Aerogel SHifter PHotomultiplier) was installed in the KEDR detector in 2013. The system consists of 160 counters arranged in two layers and contains 1000 liters of aerogel with refractive index 1.05 and 160 MCP PMTs with multialkali photocathode. The efficiency of relativistic particles registration was...

A Time-of-Propagation (TOP) detector is a ring-imaging Cherenkov detector that images a Cherenkov ring using propagation times and detected x- and y-positions of Cherenkov photons. It has been developed for particle identification in the barrel region of the Belle II spectrometer, which will probe new physics beyond the Standard Model with a luminosity of 8x10³⁵/cm²/s. The TOP detector is...

We will present overview of Aerogel Ring Imaging Cherenkov counter (ARICH) which is developed as a particle identification detector in next generation B-factory experiment, the Belle II. We show results of the studies for detector components such as aerogel radiator and newly developed photon sensor.

Photomultiplier tubes based on microchannel plates (MCP PMT) provide effective detection of single photons in high magnetic field with excellent time and space resolution. This makes MCP PMT very attractive photosensor for PID detectors in experiments at colliders. Main characteristics of MCP PMT and their limitations are discussed. Current and possible future applications of MCP PMT in...

Solid state photon detectors have been extensively developed during recent years and promise to be an alternative to photomultiplier tubes. During the last decade, a variety of new solid state photomultipliers (SSPMs) appeared on the market and interest in these devices increased regarding their application in high energy physics experiments and positron emission tomography. This presentation...

Recent results from the beam test of the FARICH detector prototypes at the BINP electron beam line are reported. We studied several samples of focusing aerogel using multichannel SiPM photodetectors with a high position resolution. One of photodetectors was based on novel digital SiPM technology - Digital Photon Counter produced by Philips. Particle track was measured by gaseous strip...

A new time-of-flight system based on strip scintillator counters for the CMD-3 detector is presented. This system designed to detect the annihilation products of the antineutrons near threshold production and will be inserted to narrow gap (7 mm) between LXe and CsI calorimeters. A time resolution about 0.8 ns achieved that is enough to separate this type of the events from other relativistic...
