Status of the TORCH time-of-flight detector

Abstract:

The TORCH time-of-flight detector is designed for large-area coverage, up to 30m^2, to provide particle identification between 2-10 GeV/c momentum over a flight distance of 10 m. The arrival times from Cherenkov photons produced within a quartz radiator plate of 10mm thickness are combined to achieve a 15 ps time-of-flight resolution per incident particle. Micro-Channel Plate Photomultiplier Tube (MCP-PMT) detectors of 53 X 53mm^2 active area have been developed with industrial partners for t...
