Title: An Architecture Proposal for the ILC Test Beam Silicon Telescope at Fermilab

Abstract

The requirements for an ILC Test Beam silicon telescope system are foreseen to be very stringent. Resolution, noise, and throughput must be carefully managed in order to provide a useful instrument for the high energy physics community to develop detector technologies for the ILC. Since the ILC Test Beam is meant to test a wide variety of different detectors, it must employ universally accepted software techniques, hardware standards and protocols as well as easy integration of hardware and software with the various clients using the system. In this paper, we describe an open modular architecture to achieve these goals, including an analysis of the entire chain of software and hardware needed to meet the requirements.

  • An all silicon pixel telescope has been assembled and used at the Fermilab Test Beam Facility (FTBF) since 2009 to provide precise tracking information for different test beam experiments with a wide range of Detectors Under Test (DUTs) requiring high resolution measurement of the track impact point. The telescope is based on CMS pixel modules left over from the CMS forward pixel production. Eight planes are arranged to achieve a resolution of less than 8 μm on the 120 GeV proton beam transverse coordinate at the DUT position. In order to achieve such resolution with 100 × 150 μm 2more » pixel cells, the planes were tilted to 25 degrees to maximize charge sharing between pixels. Crucial for obtaining this performance is the alignment software, called Monicelli, specifically designed and optimized for this system. This paper will describe the telescope hardware, the data acquisition system and the alignment software constituting this particle tracking system for test beam users.« less

  • A proposal for an in-vessel movable leak sensor, called a leak test telescope, is described for leak localization inside two of the largest thermonuclear fusion devices (TFTR and JET). To improve sensitivity and source identification beyond the present state of the art, a differential sensor head employing two actively pumping collimators, a continuously rotating shutter, and a quadrupole mass spectrometer as sensor is proposed. With the use of phase-lock signal processing this detector should be capable of detecting a leak of 1 x 10/sup -6/ Torr l/s from a distance of 0.5 m in a typical fusion environment with backgroundsmore » >1 x 10/sup -7/ Torr deuterium--tritium.« less
  • A beam telescope based on the CMS Tracker data acquisition prototype cards has been developed in order to test sensor candidates for S-LHC tracking systems. The telescope consists of up to eight reference silicon microstrip modules and slots for a couple of test modules. Beam tracks, as measured by the reference modules, provide a means of determining the position resolution and efficiency of the test modules. The impact point precision of reference tracks at the location of the test modules is about 4 {micro}m. This note presents a detailed description of the silicon beam telescope (SiBT) along with some resultsmore » from its initial operation in summer 2007 in the CERN H2 beamline.« less
  • Focus of this article is put on a method of compensating for non-uniformity of 50{mu}m thin silicon detectors, rather than measurement results. The same high sensitivity of particle identification on thin-detector thickness enables to accurately model thickness variation using the measurement data, rather than measuring the thickness separately.
