ASICs for picosecond timing and toward femtosecond timing

by Gary Varner

Tuesday, 22 May 2018 from to (Europe/Rome)
at aula 131
Starting with a report on the performance of the recently installed Time Of Propagation detector for first Belle II collisions, a summary of lessons learned from next the advanced node PSEC4 ASIC is presented. 
This leads logically to the AARDVARC ASIC, which has been recently submitted and will be summarized. 
Finally the presentation will conclude with presentation of important steps of the design of the RFpix ASIC, which is indeed for timing resolutions at the few hundred femtosecond level, and how this could
enable a new generation of high timing and spatial resolution pixel detectors.
