    Publication Year: 1986 , Page(s): 39 - 45
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3089 KB)  

    A description of the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF) is given. It is a calorimetric detector, which covers almost the complete solid angle around the interaction region with segmented calorimeter "towers". A 1.5 Tesla superconducting solenoid, 3m in diameter and 5m long, provides a uniform magnetic field in the central region for magnetic analysis of charged particles. The magnetic field volum...

    Cited by:  Papers (9)
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2041 KB)  

    The SLD is a second generation detector for the SLAC Linear Collider (SLC). It is optimized for Z° physics and exploration of new physics in the Z° energy region. The SLD will have a CCD vertex detector, high resolution drift chambers for momentum measurement, a ¿erenkov Ring Imaging Detector for particle identification, and calorimetry based on lead/liquid argon followed by an iron/gas system....

    In addition to the well known properties of scintillators, scintillating fibres developed by SACLAY offer fine grain spatial resolution over distances of several meters. They can be used for calorimetry and tracking measurements. Both applications have been successfully investigated. Results of beam tests of various prototypes are presented. View full abstract»

    Silicon detectors with 256 strips, having a pitch of 25 ¿m, and connected to two 128 channel NMOS VLSI chips each (Microplex), have been tested in relativistic charged particle beams at CERN and at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center. The readout chips have an input channel pitch of 47.5 ¿m and a single multiplexed output which provides voltages proportional to the integrated charge from each... View full abstract»

    High energy physics, as exemplified by the SSC, requires the analysis of increasingly complex events which occur at ever higher event rates. The SSC detectors embody an order of magnitude increase in cost and complexity. Research and development for a 500 M$ detector with 500K data channels must procede in step with accelerator design. Up to a decade of R&D at 1% per year (5M$) invested should be ... View full abstract»

  • The Trigger System for the Collider Detector Facility

    Publication Year: 1986 , Page(s): 63 - 64
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (484 KB)  

    The trigger logic for the Collider Detector Facility (CDF) at Fermilab is described. An analog/digital system constructs triggers based on clusters of energy in the calorimetry. These triggers are then combined with signals from the muon and central tracking systems to make a global trigger. Two levels of trigger logic have been implemented: a 'Level 1' trigger which is dead-timeless, and a more s... View full abstract»

    The SLD Detector will contain five major electronics subsystems: Vertex, Drift, Liquid Argon Calorimeter, Cerenkov Ring Imaging, and Warm Iron Calorimeter. To implement the approximately 170,000 channels of electronics, extensive miniaturization and heavy use of multiplexing techniques are required. Design criteria for each subsystem, overall system architecture, and the R & D program are describe... View full abstract»

    We have developed a new preamplifier for drift chambers with a high gain (20mV/105 e), high speed (5 ns rise time) and low power consumption (28 mW). Some of its design considerations and performances are described. A monolithic version of the preamplifier is also developed. View full abstract»
