The TORCH time-of-flight detector for particle identification and photon vertex association

Abstract:

TORCH (Time Of internally Reflected CHerenkov light) is a novel time-of-flight detector, designed to provide π /K/p particle identification up to 0∼ 1 GeV/c momentum and beyond. To achieve this, a time resolution of ∼ 15 ps combining information from 0∼ 3 detected photons is required over a 10 m flight path. Large areas can be covered with TORCH, nominally up to 30 m 2 . One such application is for the LHCb experiment, to complement the particle identification capabilities of its RICH detecto...
