Heavy Flavour Identification at the ILC
- Event time: 2:00pm until 3:00pm
- Event date: 26th January 2006
- Speaker: Joel Goldstein (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory)
- Location: Room 3315, James Clerk Maxwell Building (JCMB) James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait Road Edinburgh EH9 3FD GB
The ILC physics programme involves cleanly and efficiently reconstructing the decays of heavy flavour particles, such as B and D mesons, in a large background of low-energy electron pairs. This will require a finely pixelated vertex detector, with significant improvements over state-of-the-art in readout speed and material budget. I will discuss the work of the LCFI Collaboration to meet these technical challenges, with the development of column parallel CCDs and other fast-imaging silicon devices, and research into novel low-mass support structures.
The experimental particle physics seminar series invites speakers from all over Europe to discuss the latest developments at the LHC, accelerator and non-accelerator based neutrino physics, hardware R&D and astroparticle physics. .
