Tracking with MAPS (Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors)


Monday, February 12, 2024
11:00 - 13:00


Monolithic active pixel sensors (MAPS) have recently been used as building blocks of charged particles tracking and vertexing detectors because they offer lower material budget, higher granularity as well as a simpler assembly procedure and lower cost compared to the traditional widespread hybrid technology.

The interest towards monolithic silicon sensors offering both excellent timing and position resolution has increased and different approches are being explored. Significant improvement of time resolution and speed of charge collection has recently been demonstrated on MAPS built on 180nm TowerJazz CMOS imaging technology and is currently being further explored on 65nm TowerJazz Panasonic Semiconductor (TPSCo) technology. This technology offers the possibility to build large sensors via stitching, giving green light to the construction of truly cylindrical tracker layers. In this seminar I will describe recent and future use of MAPS to build charged particle trackers for colliders and space experiments.
