The PANDA DIRC detectors at FAIR

The PANDA detector at the international accelerator Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe (FAIR) addresses fundamental questions of hadron physics. An excellent hadronic particle

Initial performance of the GlueX DIRC detector

. The GlueX experiment at Jefferson Laboratory aims to perform quantitative tests of non-perturbative QCD by studying the spectrum of light-quark mesons and baryons. A Detector of Internally Reflected

Upgrading particle identification and searching for leptophobic bosons at GlueX

MIT's contribution to the GLUEX project was the design and implementation of upgraded particle identification (PID) for the GLUEX strangeness program. The development of a Cherenkov detector known as

Installation and Commissioning of the GLUEX DIRC

The GLUEX experiment takes place in experimental Hall D at Jefferson Lab (JLab). With a linearly polarized photon beam of up to 12 GeV energy, GLUEX is a dedicated experiment to search for hybrid

FastDIRC: a fast Monte Carlo and reconstruction algorithm for DIRC detectors

FastDIRC is a novel fast Monte Carlo and reconstruction algorithm for DIRC detectors. A DIRC employs rectangular fused-silica bars both as Cherenkov radiators and as light guides. Cherenkov-photon

DeepRICH: learning deeply Cherenkov detectors

TLDR
DeepRICH is a novel deep learning algorithm for fast reconstruction which can be applied to different imaging Cherenkov detectors and has the advantage to bypass low-level details needed to build a likelihood, allowing for a sensitive improvement in computation time at potentially the same reconstruction performance of other established reconstruction algorithms.

Development of a Focusing DIRC

Benefiting from the recent introduction of new fast vacuum-based photon detectors with a transit time spread of sigmaTTS ~ 30-150ps, we are developing a novel RICH detector capable of correcting the

The Focusing DIRC - the first RICH detector to correct the chromatic error by timing, and the development of a new TOF

We have built and successfully tested a novel particle identification detector called Focusing DIRC. The prototype's concept is based on the BaBar DIRC with several important improvements: (a) much

SLAC Cosmic Ray Telescope Facility

SLAC does not have a test beam for the HEP detector development at present. We have therefore created a cosmic ray telescope (CRT) facility, which is presently being used to test the FDIRC prototype.
