necessary reference data b Estimate the theoretical resolution for this pulse if the Fano factor for methane is 015 c Estimate the time at which the electronic pulse from this detector reaches its maximum value d Estimate the minimum total capacitance of the electronic circuit with R509 that would be appropriate to measure this pulse e Estimate the pulse height of this signal in volts if the

device has a capacitance of 7 pf and a resistance of 101L2 9 The manufacturer reports that the average change output is 2X10 1L3 coulombs at 600 V 1 What is the ratio of the signal current to the

the NSCL involves separating the pulse heights and times of ight TOF of secondary beams for event by event particle identi cation In a recent experiment a 500nm thick silicon PlN was used to identify 66Fe and 6700 ions fully stripped at the experimental endstation The two ions had the same magnetic rigidity of Bp m y q 366 Tm The TOF was measured over a distance of 2097 meters The PlN detector was connected with a very short cable to a charge sensitive preampli er with a gain of 1000 VGeV of injected charge The preamp was then connected by a 50 ns long RG58CU cable eg7 Table 161 in text to a main ampli er that split the input signal between a timing lter ampli er TFA7 CR RC network and a shaping ampli er SA7 CR RC3 network Finally7 the logic signals for the TOF measurement were created in a Tennelec TC 455 constant fraction discriminator f02 with the appropriate cable delays The rise time of the signal from the preamp was 100 ns and the time constants in the TFA were set to 250 ns H What is the value of the ENC in electrons if the RMS white noise from the preamp was observed to be 10 mV 10 What is the maximum signal to noise ratio of the tail pulse from the preamp when the 66Fe passed through the detector 9 Make an estimate of the maximum signal to noise ratio for the pulse after pass ing through the cable and splitting in the main ampli er You can assume that the white noise is not attenuated by the cable rb The TOF was measured between a fast signal from a scintillator connected to a PMT having a time width of 025 ns and the signal from the TFA What is the expected width in ns for the observed TOF for the 66Fe fragments if the TFA preserved the signal to noise ratio of the preamp signal 9quot What is the time resolution for this TOF measurement 03 This TOF was measured with a 2048 channel time to digital convertor TDC and the full scale was set to 100 ns How long did the start pulse from the scintil lator have to be delayed in ns to put the TOF in the middle of the measurement scale 5 What is the expected FWHM of the observed TOF in channels77 in the TDC was mag 5 W e b i Pm 1J3 4 E pc Lu MM 2 1 MV 33 i H 8 1 My Z5 342 W 1 Zirme IF emQsz 3923 d5 F

manufactured by Ml CRON Semiconductor Corp in England A typical recently purchased PIN device is MSX25 500 that has an area of 50x50 mm2 and a thickness of 517nm The operating bias is 90 volts for full depletion The contact layers are 05 pm each and thus can be ignored Make an estimate of the resistivity of this material if it is n type silicon A 4 Megapixel77 chip in a modern digital camera is based on a chip with 2240x1680 pixels and the data can be clocked out at 30 MHZ 1 How long does it take to record a single image if the device is readout through a single Analogue to digital convertor ADC 2 How many green photons 430 nm must be absorbed by the silicon in one pixel if the ADC has a threshold of 20 electrons What is the ratio of the mean number of photons created in a standard 377x377 NalTl detector by the photopeak of the 40K decay to that created by the average cosmic ray interaction Since uranium is an impurity in most metals7 a gas lled detector will have a low level background from alpha particles that are emitted from uranium and its daughter nuclei that leave the wall and enter the gas A typical level of contamination is 20 parts per billion Estimate the counting rate of alpha particles per square centimeter per second leaving the surface Note that the most important alpha particle will come from 235U decay and assume that one half of the alpha particles exit the surface from a layer that is equal to the 12 the range of the alpha particle CM 0amp3 mired 5 WZooq r Pf i552 1 3 m e Mow Zue4z 371 gt Al R w as 331 Va A 4 azzi b W3 Pa A few 4 z 1
