This article presents the MEG II Cylindrical Drift CHamber (CDCH), a key detector for the phase 2 of MEG, which aims at reaching a sensitivity level of the order 6x10^-14 of for the charged Lepton Flavour Violating mu+-->e+ gamma decay (Calibbi and Signorelli, 2018; Cei and Nicolò, 2014). CDCH is designed to overcome the limitations of the MEG tracker (Baldini et al., 2013) and guarantee the proper operation at high rates with long-term detector stability. CDCH is a low-mass unique volume detector with high granularity: 9 layers of 192 drift cells, few mm wide, defined by wires in a stereo configuration for longitudinal hit localization. The total radiation length is 1.5x10^-3 X0, thus minimizing the Multiple Coulomb Scattering (MCS) contribution and allowing for a single-hit resolution of 110 micometers (Baldini et al., 2016) and a momentum resolution of 130 keV/c. CDCH integration into the MEG II experimental apparatus (Baldini et al., 2018) will start in this year.

Abstract

This article presents the MEG II Cylindrical Drift CHamber (CDCH), a key detector for the phase 2 of MEG, which aims at reaching a sensitivity level of the order 6x10^-14 of for the charged Lepton Flavour Violating mu+-->e+ gamma decay (Calibbi and Signorelli, 2018; Cei and Nicolò, 2014). CDCH is designed to overcome the limitations of the MEG tracker (Baldini et al., 2013) and guarantee the proper operation at high rates with long-term detector stability. CDCH is a low-mass unique volume detector with high granularity: 9 layers of 192 drift cells, few mm wide, defined by wires in a stereo configuration for longitudinal hit localization. The total radiation length is 1.5x10^-3 X0, thus minimizing the Multiple Coulomb Scattering (MCS) contribution and allowing for a single-hit resolution of 110 micometers (Baldini et al., 2016) and a momentum resolution of 130 keV/c. CDCH integration into the MEG II experimental apparatus (Baldini et al., 2018) will start in this year.
