The Argonne MCP-based photo detector is an offshoot of the Large Area Pico-second Photo Detector (LAPPD) project, wherein 6 cm × 6 cm sized detectors are made at Argonne National Laboratory. We have successfully built and tested our first detectors for pico-second timing and few mm spatial resolution. We discuss our efforts to customize these detectors to operate in a cryogenic environment. Initial plans aim to operate in liquid argon. We are also exploring ways to mitigate wave length shifting… 

Characterisation and testing of a prototype 6×6 cm 2 Argonne MCP-PMT

Fast-timing microchannel plate photodetectors: Design, fabrication, and characterization.

A detailed design, fabrication, and characterization of 6 × 6 cm2 fast timing photodetectors based on next-generation microchannel plates (MCPs) are reported, which exhibit electron gains well beyond 107 level with good relative uniformity.

Design Improvement and Bias Voltage Optimization of Glass-Body Microchannel Plate Picosecond Photodetector

Microchannel plate photodetectors, capable of picosecond time resolution and sub-mm spatial resolution, are a perfect candidate for the next generation of photodetectors for precision timing



RF strip-line anodes for Psec large-area MCP-based photodetectors

Invited article: a test-facility for large-area microchannel plate detector assemblies using a pulsed sub-picosecond laser.

A facility is assembled at Argonne National Laboratory for characterizing the performance of a wide variety of microchannel plate configurations and anode structures in configurations approaching complete detector systems.

Summary of the second workshop on liquid argon time projection chamber research and development in the United States

The second workshop to discuss the development of liquid argon time projection chambers (LArTPCs) in the United States was held at Fermilab on July 8-9, 2014. The workshop was organized under the

Expected performance of an ideal liquid argon neutrino detector with enhanced sensitivity to scintillation light

Scintillation light is used in liquid argon (LAr) neutrino detectors to provide a trigger signal, veto information against cosmic rays, and absolute event timing. In this work, we discuss additional
