I.N.F.N. - Sezione di Lecce

Impegnato nella realizzazione di camere a deriva ultraleggere con capacità di Cluster Timing e Cluster Counting e nello studio di tecniche di costruzione innovative

The Lecce working group continues a consolidated tradition for many years in the design and construction of detectors based on cutting-edge technologies for the tracking of charged particles, to be used in next generation high-energy physics experiments, in search of signals beyond the Standard Model.
In this case, the Lecce group is engaged in the construction of ultralight drift chambers for the experiments planned for future lepton colliders. The group works in close collaboration with other groups both in Italy and abroad, in the context of the detectors proposed for the FCC-ee at CERN in Geneva, for the CEPC at the IHEP in China and for the Super-Charm-Tau -Factory (SCTF) at the BINP in Russia, studying the use of innovative construction techniques and proposing the implementation of an online processing (thanks to the use of FPGA) of the fine time structure of the signal, with the aim of obtaining the maximum information possible thanks to the cluster timing technique.
