  • The PbWO{sub 4} calorimeter of the ALICE detector is designed to detect the prompt photons to provide direct information on the partonic, early phases of the heavy-ion interaction. The goal is to measure all the photons over a large enough solid angle to reconstruct both {pi}{sup 0}`s and {eta}`s. A proposed readout system for the ALICE PbWO{sub 4} photon spectrometer is presented. In one proposed implementation, light will be detected from each end of the crystals by PIN photodiodes and this signal will be amplified by charge-sensitive amplifiers. The 73,728 channel readout system will accept the preamplifier signals and delivermore » digitized data to the data collection modules. A readout board will consist of 8-channel, custom front-end chips which form energy and timing signals, and board-level control and communication circuits. Many of the subcircuits proposed for this spectrometer have been developed for use in other applications. The performance of these circuits is shown.« less
  • A prototype electronics package of amplifier, ADC, pulser, data-bus interface, bias supply and low voltage supply has been developed to process high resolution data from rugged intrinsic germanium detectors with high reliability in a harsh environment. This sturdy modular package attachable to the dewar of a rugged detector oriented horizontally or downward degrades detector energy resolution at 1332 KeV less than 0.25 KeV.
  • The high luminosities of L > 10{sup 34} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1} at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN produce an intense radiation environment that the detectors and their electronics must withstand. The ATLAS detector is a multi-purpose apparatus constructed to explore the new particle physics regime opened by the LHC. Of the many decay particles observed by the ATLAS detector, the energy of the created electrons and photons is measured by a sampling calorimeter technique that uses Liquid Argon (LAr) as its active medium. The front end (FE) electronic readout of the ATLAS LAr calorimeter located on the detectormore » itself consists of a combined analog and digital processing system. In order to exploit the higher luminosity while keeping the same trigger bandwidth of 100 kHz, higher transverse granularity, higher resolution and longitudinal shower shape information will be provided from the LAr calorimeter to the Level-l trigger processors. New trigger readout electronics have been designed for this purpose, which will withstand the radiation dose levels expected for an integrated luminosity of 3000 fb{sup -1} during the high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC), which is well above the original LHC design qualifications.

  • The readout of double sided silicon strip detectors in colliding beam experiments poses severe constraints on the mechanical and electronical design. In this paper, the authors describe the system that has been developed for the ALEPH Minivertex detector at LEP. The design makes use of capacitively coupled double sided silicon strip detectors and custom designed low noise VLSI CMOS electronics, mounted on ceramic carriers which simultaneously serve as mechanical support and substrates for thick film hybrid circuitry. A description of the detector system with its peripheral driving and readout electronics as well as first test results with a light sourcemore » and a particle beam is given.« less
