Multi-gap RPC prototypes with a multi-strip-electrode readout were developed for the small polar angle region of the CBM-TOF subdetector, the most demanding zone in terms of granularity and counting rate. The prototypes are based on using low resistivity (∼ 1010 Ω·cm) glass electrodes for performing in high counting rate environment. The strip width/pitch size was chosen such to fulfill the impedance matching with the front-end electronics and the granularity requirements of the innermost zone…

Towards the construction of the inner zone of the CBM-TOF wall

The Time-of-Flight (TOF) subsystem, one of the core detectors of the CBM experiment, is dedicated to the identification of all charged hadrons produced in beam-target interaction. The targeted system

Performance studies of MRPC prototypes for CBM

Multi-gap Resistive Plate Chambers (MRPCs) [1] with multi-strip readout are considered to be the optimal detector candidate for the Time-of-Flight (ToF) wall in the Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM)

In-beam test of the RPC architecture foreseen to be used for the CBM-TOF inner wall

The Time Of Flight (TOF) subsystem is one of the main detectors of the CBM experiment. The TOF wall in conjunction with Silicon Tracking System (STS) is foreseen to identify charged hadrons, i.e.
