mTOF performance during mCBM beam time at GSI

  title={mTOF performance during mCBM beam time at GSI},
  author={Qiunan Zhang and I. M. Deppner and N. Herrmann and Yi Wang},
  journal={arXiv: Instrumentation and Detectors},
The future Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research (FAIR), currently in construction in Darmstadt, Germany, is one of the largest research projects worldwide. The Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment is one of the main pillars at FAIR, studying the quantum chromodynamics (QCD) phase diagram at high baryon densities with unprecedented interaction rate in heavy ion collisions up to 10 MHz. This requires new data-driven readout chain, new data analysis methods and high-rate capable…

The FAIR Phase 0 program of the CBM TOF

In order to provide particle identification (PID) of charged hadrons at the future high-rate Compressed Baryonic Matter (CBM) experiment, the TOF group has developed a large-area Time-of-Flight (ToF)

Multigap Resistive Plate Chambers for Time of Flight Applications

With the advantages of high-performance, easy to build and relatively low cost, the multigap resistive plate chamber has been arousing broad interests over the last few decades. It has become a new



The CBM Time-of-Flight system

The Compressed Baryonic Matter spectrometer (CBM) is a future fixed-target heavy-ion experiment located at the Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Darmstadt, Germany. The key element

The CBM Time-of-Flight wall — a conceptual design

Charged hadron identification in the Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) is realized via the Time-of-Flight method [1]. For this purpose the CBM-ToF collaboration designed a Time-of-Flight

The GSI Event-Driven TDC GET4 is the first prototype of a high resolution low power event-driven TDC for the CBM-Time of Flight detector readout and could cover different event types like data, error or synchronisation events.

Simulation and reconstruction of free-streaming data in CBM

The challenges and concepts for the reconstruction of such free-streaming data are discussed and first steps for a time-based simulation are presented which is necessary for the development and validation of the reconstruction algorithms, and which requires modifications to the current software framework FAIRROOT.

A prototype of a high rating MRPC

Six-gap resistive plate chamber (MRPC) prototypes with semiconductive glass electrodes (bulk resistivity ~ 1010 Ωcm) were studied for suitability in time-of-flight (TOF) applications at high rates.

A model for RPC detectors operating at high rate

We present a simple model to describe the behavior of Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) exposed to a high particle flux. We show that the RPC current, I ; saturates at large flux values and we explain
