The beam spectrometer of the NA62 experiment has to sustain high and non-uniform beam rate (∼1.5 MHz/mm2 in the hot center and 0.8-1.0 GHz in total, hence the name Gigatracker) and should preserve beam divergence and limit beam hadronic interactions. The Gigatracker has to provide precise momentum, time and angular measurements on every single track of the secondary 75 GeV/c hadron beam with a timing precision of 150 ps (rms). To meet these requirements, three hybrid silicon pixel detector stations will be installed in vacuum.

Abstract

The beam spectrometer of the NA62 experiment has to sustain high and non-uniform beam rate (∼1.5 MHz/mm2 in the hot center and 0.8-1.0 GHz in total, hence the name Gigatracker) and should preserve beam divergence and limit beam hadronic interactions. The Gigatracker has to provide precise momentum, time and angular measurements on every single track of the secondary 75 GeV/c hadron beam with a timing precision of 150 ps (rms). To meet these requirements, three hybrid silicon pixel detector stations will be installed in vacuum.
