1 Advanced Implantation Detector Array (AIDA): Update & Issues presented by Tom Davinson on behalf of the DESPEC-DSSD/AIDA collaboration Tom Davinson School of Physics The University of Edinburgh

2 DESPEC: Implantation DSSD Concept Super FRS Low Energy Branch (LEB) Exotic nuclei – energies ~50-150MeV/u Implanted into multi-plane, highly segmented DSSD array Implant - decay correlations Multi-GeV DSSD implantation events Observe subsequent p, 2p, , , ,  p,  n … decays Measure half lives, branching ratios, decay energies …

3 Implantation DSSD Configurations Two configurations proposed: a)8cm x 24cm “cocktail” mode many isotopes measured simultaneously b) 8cm x 8cm high efficiency mode concentrate on particular isotope(s)

4 DSSD Segmentation We need to implant at high rates and to observe implant – decay correlations for decays with long half lives. DSSD segmentation ensures average time between implants for given x,y quasi-pixel >> decay half life to be observed. Implantation profile  x ~  y ~ 2cm  z ~ 1mm Implantation rate (8cm x 24cm) ~ 10kHz, ~kHz per isotope (say) Longest half life to be observed ~ seconds Implies quasi-pixel dimensions ~ 0.5mm x 0.5mm Segmentation also has instrumentation performance benefits

5 DSSD Technology well established (e.g. GLAST LAT tracker) 6” wafer technology 10cm x 10cm area 1mm wafer thickness Integrated components a.c. coupling polysilicon bias resistors … important for ASICs Series strip bonding 8.95 cm square Hamamatsu-Photonics SSD before cutting from the 6-inch wafer. The thickness is 400 microns, and the strip pitch is 228 microns.

Stopping power? Ge  detector? Calibration? Radiation damage? Cooling? courtesy B.Rubio

7 AIDA: Instrumentation Requirements Large number of channels required, limited available space and cost mandate use of Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) technology. Requirements Selectable gain:low 20GeV FSR (use reset) : intermediate 1GeV FSR : high 20MeV FSR Noise  ~ 5keV rms. Selectable threshold: minimum ~ 25keV @ high gain ( assume 5  ) Integral and differential non-linearity Autonomous overload recovery ~  s Signal processing time <10  s (decay-decay correlations) Receive timestamp data Timing trigger for coincidences with other detector systems DSSD segmentation reduces input loading of preamplifier and enables excellent noise performance.
