Title: Single event effects and their mitigation for the Collider Detector at Fermilab

Abstract

We present an overview of radiation induced failures and operational experiences from the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF). In our summary, we examine single event effects (SEE) in electronics located in and around the detector. We present results of experiments to identify the sources and composition of the radiation and steps to reduce the rate of SEEs in our electronics. Our studies have led to a better, more complete understanding of the radiation environment in a modern hadron collider experiment.

  • General magnetic characteristics of the CDF and D0 hadron collider detectors at Fermilab are described. The method and equipment for the field measurement for both detectors are described, and their field measurement data are presented. The magnetic field distribution inside the CDF solenoid magnet was measured extensively only at the boundaries, and the field values inside the volume were reconstructed. The effects due to the joints and the return conductor were measured and are discussed. The flux distribution inside the yokes and the fringing field of the D0 toroids were calculated and compared with measured data. A proposal to generatemore » dipole magnetic field inside the D0 toroidal magnet is discussed. 9 refs., 6 figs.« less
  • Recent results from the CDF experiment are described. The Standard Model gives a good description of jet production, and W/Z production and decay. There is no evidence yet for the top quark, for fourth generation quarks, or for deviations from the Standard Model ascribable to quark substructure, supersymmetric particles, or heavy additional W-like or Z-like bosons. Limits are given where applicable. A search for a light Higgs Boson is also described. 11 refs., 24 figs.
  • We have analyzed the Collider Detector at Fermilab {ital ee}{gamma}{gamma}+ missing energy event. Its kinematics and expected rate are consistent with selectron pair production. We consider two classes of general low-energy supersymmetric theories where the lightest neutralino or the gravitino is the lightest supersymmetric particle. The supersymmetric Lagrangian is tightly constrained by the production and decay of the selectron and other data. We discuss other processes at the Fermilab Tevatron and at LEP that could confirm or exclude a supersymmetric explanation of the event. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
  • The {ital e}{sup +}{ital e}{sup {minus}}{gamma}{gamma}+{ital E/}{sub {ital T}} event reported recently by the CDF Collaboration has been interpreted as a signal of supersymmetry in several recent papers. In this Rapid Communication, we report on an alternative nonsupersymmetric interpretation of the event using an extension of the standard model that contains new physics at the electroweak scale that does not effect the existing precision electroweak data. We extend the standard model by including an extra sequential generation of fermions, heavy right-handed neutrinos for all generations, and an extra singly charged SU(2)-singlet Higgs boson. We discuss possible ways to discriminate thismore » from the standard supersymemtric interpretations. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
