Design and test of an extremely high resolution Timing Counter for the MEG II experiment: preliminary results
The design and tests of Timing Counter elements for the upgrade of the MEG experiment, MEG II, are presented. The detector is based on several small plates of scintillator with a Silicon PhotoMultipliers dual-side readout. The optimisation of the single counter elements (SiPMs, scintillators, geometry) is described. Moreover, the results obtained with a first prototype tested at the Beam Test Facility (BTF) of the INFN Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati (LNF) are presented.
