Heavy Flavour Identification at the ILC

Experimental Particle Physics seminar

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,

Event details

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.

Event resources

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. .
