Study and realization of a High Granularity Timing Detector (HGTD) for the ATLAS detector for the High Luminosity phase of the LHC

by Julien Bolmont - 25 October 2018

Title: Study and realization of a High Granularity Timing Detector (HGTD) for the ATLAS detector for the High Luminosity phase of the LHC

Equipe: Masses et Interactions Fondamentales ; ATLAS group

Advisor: Sophie Trincaz-Duvoid

Co-advisor: Didier Lacour

Description:

The LPNHE ATLAS group is engaged in the detector upgrade program for the high luminosity phase of the LHC. In this context, the group contributes to the realization of a high granularity timing detector that will allow an improvement of ATLAS performances, providing a better separation between events resulting from the collision and those related to the pile-up.

The PhD subject covers several aspects of the work needed for this future detector.

The student will have an important commitment in testing prototypes of detectors. She/he will participate in test beam with accelerators at CERN (Geneva) and DESY (Hamburg) and will work on the analysis of the collected data. The LPNHE is in charge of the assembly of the detector, so the student could also contribute to the construction and the validation of a prototype demonstrator.

The student will also work on the detector simulation in order to optimize its characteristics. He/she will participate to the elaboration of algorithms based on the very good time resolution of the detector (30ps).

The student will present regularly his/her work in collaboration meetings at CERN.

An internship with the PhD team is highly recommended.
