The LHCb RICH upgrade for the high luminosity LHC era


Wotton, S A; LHCb Collaboration; Bernet, R; Muller, K; Owen, Patrick; Serra, N; Steinkamp, O; et al (2024). The LHCb RICH upgrade for the high luminosity LHC era. Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section A: Accelerators, Spectrometers, Detectors and Associated Equipment, 1058:168824.

Abstract

The hadron particle identification provided by the RICH system in LHCb over a momentum range of 2.6–100 GeV/c has been a key element of the success of the experiment and will remain equally important for Upgrade II. With luminosities expected up to 7.5 times those expected for Upgrade I and 75 times those realised in the past, maintaining the current excellent particle identification performance demands a substantial improvement in the precision of the measurements of the space and time coordinates of the photons detected in the RICH. It will require a readout strategy with high-resolution timing information and making significant improvements in the resolution of the reconstructed Cherenkov angle.
