Beam tests of a large-scale TORCH time-of-flight demonstrator

Abstract:

The TORCH time-of-flight detector is designed to provide particle identification in the momentum range 2−10GeV∕c over large areas. The detector exploits prompt Cherenkov light produced by charged particles traversing a 10mm thick quartz plate. The photons propagate via total internal reflection and are focused onto a detector plane comprising position-sensitive Micro-Channel Plate Photo-Multiplier Tubes (MCP-PMT)detectors. The goal is to achieve a single-photon timing resolution of 70ps, givi...
