Abstract:

TORCH (Timing Of internally Reflected CHerenkov photons) is a precision time-of-flight detector for particle identification at low momentum. It uses Cherenkov photons produced by charged particles passing through a quartz radiator plate. Some of these photons propagate by total internal reflection, they emerge at the edges and are subsequently focused onto photon detectors. The recorded positions and arrival times of the photons are used to precisely reconstruct their trajectory and propag...
