Status of the TORCH time-of-flight project

Abstract:

TORCH is a time-of-flight detector, designed to provide charged π∕K particle identification up to a momentum of 10GeV/c for a 10m flight path. To achieve this level of performance, a time resolution of 15 ps per incident particle is required. TORCH uses a plane of quartz of 1 cm thickness as a source of Cherenkov photons, which are then focussed onto square Micro-Channel Plate Photomultipliers (MCP-PMTs) of active area 53 × 53mm2, segmented into 8 × 128 pixels equivalent. A small-scale TORCH ...
