"Pixel-level sampling CMOS Vertex Detectors for ILC"
Our Pixel Vertex Detector R&D Effort for ILC is an outgrowth of a
pixel upgrade effort for the Belle detector at the KEK B Factory. For
this further development we are joined by Fermilab, and consist of
groups from Europe, Japan and the US. Any readout architecture
capable of surviving the much harsher and lower track momentum
requirement of a Super KEKB environment, should be a viable
alternative for an ILC Pixel Vertex Detector. Given the near-term
nature of this development, it provides the possibility to evolve and
test a full detector system under actual running conditions at the
world's highest luminosity collider.
Deep submicron CMOS shows great promise for ILC vertexing through the
implementation of complex algorithms to reduce occupancy. We intend
to explore these possibilities, with the current 3 generations of
experience in such technologies to guide our effort.
To date we have made good progress in addressing some of the key issues
needed before a CMOS (MAPS) type of detector may be used in the ILC environment:
- Signal processing/SNR
- Radiation hardness
- Mechanical support/cooling of thin devices
- Readout speed/functionality
Much work remains to be done:
- Thinning/active edges
- EMI impact on pixel storage and readout
Please address the following questions in your statement.
- What are the goals of this R&D project. How does this R&D project address the needs of one or more of the detector concepts?
- If there are multiple institutions participating in this project, please describe the distribution of responsibilities.
- Are there significant recent results?
- What are the plans for the near future(about 1 year)? What are the plans on a time scale of 2 to 3 years?
- Are there critical items that must be addressed before significant results can be obtained from this project?
- Is the support for this project sufficient? Are there significant improvements that could be made with additional support?
