The ALICE experiment at the CERN LHC
ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) is a general-purpose, heavy-ion detector at the CERN LHC which focuses on QCD, the strong-interaction sector of the Standard Model. It is designed to addressExpand
The DIRC particle identification system for the BaBar experiment
Abstract A new type of ring-imaging Cherenkov detector is being used for hadronic particle identification in the B a B ar experiment at the SLAC B Factory (PEP-II). This detector is called DIRC, anExpand

We present empirical results describing the implementation of an IEEE Standard 754 compliant floating-point adder/multiplier using field programmable gate arrays. Expand
ALICE: Physics Performance Report, Volume II
ALICE is a general-purpose heavy-ion experiment designed to study the physics of strongly interacting matter and the quark–gluon plasma in nucleus–nucleus collisions at the LHC. It currently involvesExpand
The BABAR detector: Upgrades, operation and performance
The BaBar detector operated successfully at the PEP-II asymmetric e +e- collider at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory from 1999 to 2008. This report covers upgrades, operation, and performanceExpand
The STAR silicon strip detector (SSD)
Abstract The STAR Silicon Strip Detector (SSD) completes the three layers of the Silicon Vertex Tracker (SVT) to make an inner tracking system located inside the Time Projection Chamber (TPC). ThisExpand
Measurement of CP-violating asymmetries in B0 decays to CP eigenstates.
We present measurements of time-dependent CP-violating asymmetries in neutral B decays to several CP eigenstates. The measurement uses a data sample of 23x10(6) Upsilon(4S)-->BbarB decays collectedExpand
DIRC, the internally reflecting ring imaging Cherenkov detector for BABAR
The DIRC is a new type of Cherenkov imaging device that will be used for the first time in the BABAR detector at the asymmetric B-factory, PEP-II. It is based on total internal reflection and usesExpand
Online Monitoring of the Osiris Reactor with the Nucifer Neutrino Detector
The detection of electron antineutrinos emitted in the decay chains of the fission products in nuclear reactors, combined with reactor core simulations, provides an efficient tool to assess both theExpand
Backthinned TDI CCD image sensor design and performance for the Pleiades high resolution Earth observation satellites
The PLEIADES-HR Earth observing satellites, under CNES development, combine a 0.7m resolution panchromatic channel, and a multispectral channel allowing a 2.8 m resolution, in 4 spectral bands. Expand
