  2. The Standard Model A Higgs field interacts as well, giving particles their masses. H The SM states that: The world is made up of quarks and leptons that interact by exchanging bosons. 35 times heavier than b quark Lepton Masses:Me<M<M ; M~0.* Quark Masses:Mu ~ Md < Ms < Mc< Mb << Mt

  3. Particle Reactions Time • Idealistic View: • Elementary Particle Reaction • Usually cannot “see” the reaction itself • To reconstruct the process and the particle properties, need maximum information about end-products

  4. Complicated Collisions

  5. Rare Collision Events Rare Events, such as Higgs production, are difficult to find! Need good detectors, triggers, readout to reconstruct the mess into a piece of physics. Time Cartoon by Claus Grupen, University of Seigen

  6. We don’t use bubble chambers anymore!

  7. Global Detector Systems • Overall Design Depends on: • Number of particles • Event topology • Momentum/energy • Particle identity  No single detector does it all…  Create detector systems Collider Geometry Fixed Target Geometry • “full” solid angle d coverage • Very restricted access • Limited solid angle (d coverage (forward) • Easy access (cables, maintenance)

  8. Ideal Detectors End products • An “ideal” particle detector would provide… • Coverage of full solid angle, no cracks, fine segmentation (why?) • Measurement of momentum and energy • Detection, tracking, and identification of all particles (mass, charge) • Fast response: no dead time (what is dead time?) • However, practical limitations: Technology, Space,Budget

  9. Individual Detector Types Modern detectors consist of many different pieces of equipment to measure different aspects of an event. Measuring a particle’s properties: • Position • Momentum • Energy • Charge • Type

  10. Particle Decay Signatures Particles are detected via their interaction with matter. Many types of interactions are involved, mainly electromagnetic. In the end, always rely on ionization and excitation of matter.

  11. “Jets” Jet (jet) n. a collimated spray of high energy hadrons Quarks fragment into many particles to form a jet, depositing energy in both calorimeters. Jet shapes narrower at high ET.

  12. Modern Collider Detectors • the basic idea is to measure charged particles, photons, jets, missing energy accurately • want as little material in the middle to avoid multiple scattering • cylinder wins out over sphere for obvious reasons!

  18. Quiz: Decays of a Z boson Z bosons have a very short lifetime, decaying in ~10-27 s, so that only decay particles are seen in the detector. By looking at these detector signatures, identify the daughters of the Z boson. But some daughters can also decay: More Fun with Z Bosons, Click Here!

  19. CDF Schematic

  20. Geometry of CDF • calorimeter is arranged in projective “towers” pointing at the interaction region • most of the depth is for the hadronic part of the calorimeter

  25. Call ‘em Spectrometers • a “spectrometer” is a tool to measure the momentum spectrum of a particle in general • one needs a magnet, and tracking detectors to determine momentum: • helical trajectory deviates due to radiation E losses, spatial inhomogeneities in B field, multiple scattering, ionization • Approximately:

  26. Magnets for 4 Detectors Solenoid Toroid + Large homogeneous field inside - Weak opposite field in return yoke - Size limited by cost - Relatively large material budget + Field always perpendicular to p + Rel. large fields over large volume + Rel. low material budget - Non-uniform field - Complex structural design • Examples: • Delphi: SC, 1.2 T, 5.2 m, L 7.4 m • L3: NC, 0.5 T, 11.9 m, L 11.9 m • CMS: SC, 4 T, 5.9 m, L 12.5 m • Example: • ATLAS: Barrel air toroid, SC, ~1 T, 9.4 m, L 24.3 m
