Advances in HTS materials

P Tixador
HTS (High Temperature Superconductor) offer great opportunities to reach higher magnetic flux densities when compared with LTS (Low Temperature Superconductor). The upper generally accepted limit of 23 T using Nb3Sn can be overstep with HTS. HTS Bi-2212 round wires have shown critical current densities as higher than 1000 MA/m2 under 45 T at 4.2 K. The road for very high fields is open. The round shape suits rather well for magnets, especially with high current...

A BiCMOS synchronous pulse discriminator for the LHCb calorimeter system

S Bota, R Graciani, A Diéguez & D Gascón
A monolithic prototype for the analogue readout of the Scintillator Pad Detector (SPD) of the LHCb calorimeter is presented. A low power version that works at 3.3 V has been designed using the 0.8 mu m Bi CMOS technology of AMS. It consists of a charge discriminator with a dual path structure formed by an integrator, a pile-up correction, a subtractor and a comparator. The chip also includes a DAC and serial digital control interface...

The LHCb Silicon Tracker: lessons learned (so far)

A Vollhardt
The LHCb Silicon Tracker is part of the main tracking system of the LHCb detector. It covers the full acceptance of the experiment in the Tracker Turicensis (TT) in front of the dipole magnet and the innermost part in the three Inner Tracker (IT) stations downstream of the magnet. We report on final elements of the production, the installation and commissioning process in the experiment. Focusing on electronic and hardware issues we describe the lessons...

Measurements of g-factors of isomeric states in fission fragments

A Wolf & E Cheifetz
The inherent alignment of the fragments from spontaneous fission of /sup 252/Cf was used to measure the sign and magnitude of g-factors of isomeric states by the time differential perturbed angular correlation method. The result for the 6/sup +/ isomeric state of /sup 135/Te, composed predominantly of two protons in a (g/sub 7/2/)/sup 2/ configuration coupled to a double magic core, is g=+0.846+or-0.025. This is significantly above the Schmidt value and is discussed in terms...

Experiments on a 14.5 GHz ECR source

K Langbein & C E Hill
The 14.5 GHz ECR4 source supplied to CERN in the framework of the Heavy Ion Facility collaboration provided Pb27+ operational beams to a new custom built linac in 1994. This source, which operates in the pulsed "afterglow" mode, quickly met its design specification of 80 emA and now provides currents >100 emA regularly. Early source tests showed the existence of extremely stable modes of operation. In the search for higher intensities a number of experiments...

Neutrino Oscillation Physics

Boris Kayser
To complement the neutrino-physics lectures given at the 2011 International School on Astro Particle Physics devoted to Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics (ISAPP 2011; Varenna, Italy), at the 2011 European School of High Energy Physics (ESHEP 2011; Cheila Gradistei, Romania), and, in modified form, at other summer schools, we present here a written description of the physics of neutrino oscillation. This description is centered on a new way of deriving the oscillation probability. We also provide...

HARDROC, Readout chip of the Digital Hadronic Calorimeter of ILC

S Callier, N Martin-Chassard, N Seguin-Moreau, F Dulucq & C De La Taille
HARDROC (HAdronic Rpc Detector ReadOut Chip) [1] is the very front end chip designed for the readout of the RPC or Micromegas foreseen for the Digital HAdronic CALorimeter (DHCAL) of the future International Linear Collider. The very fine granularity of the ILC hadronic calorimeters (1cm2 pads) implies a huge number of electronics channels (4 105 /m3) which is a new feature of “imaging” calorimetry. Moreover, for compactness, the chips must be embedded inside the detector...
