    The IDEA detector concept for a future e+^{+}e−^{-} collider adopts an ultra-low mass drift chamber as a central tracking system. The He-based ultra-low mass drift chamber is designed to provide efficient tracking, a high-precision momentum measurement, and excellent particle identification by exploiting the cluster counting technique. This paper describes the expected tracking performance, obtained with full and fast simulation, for track reconstruction on detailed simulated physics events. Moreover, the details of the construction parameters of the drift chamber, including the inspection of new material for the wires, new techniques for soldering the wires, the development of an improved schema for the drift cell, and the choice of a gas mixture, will be described

    Full text link
    Recognition of electron peaks and primary ionization clusters in real data-driven waveform signals is the main goal of research for the usage of the cluster counting technique in particle identification at future colliders. The state-of-the-art open-source algorithms fail in finding the cluster distribution Poisson behavior even in low-noise conditions. In this work, we present cutting-edge algorithms and their performance to search for electron peaks and identify ionization clusters in experimental data using the latest available computing tools and physics knowledge.Comment: 6 pages, 12 figures, Proceedings of: ACAT202

    Particle identification with the cluster counting technique for the IDEA drift chamber

    Full text link
    IDEA (Innovative Detector for an Electron-positron Accelerator) is a general-purpose detector concept, designed to study electron-positron collisions in a wide energy range from a very large circular leptonic collider. Its drift chamber is designed to provide an efficient tracking, a high precision momentum measurement and an excellent particle identification by exploiting the application of the cluster counting technique. To investigate the potential of the cluster counting techniques on physics events, a simulation of the ionization clusters generation is needed, therefore we developed an algorithm which can use the energy deposit information provided by Geant4 toolkit to reproduce, in a fast and convenient way, the clusters number distribution and the cluster size distribution. The results obtained confirm that the cluster counting technique allows to reach a resolution 2 times better than the traditional dE/dx method. A beam test has been performed during November 2021 at CERN on the H8 to validate the simulations results, to define the limiting effects for a fully efficient cluster counting and to count the number of electron clusters released by an ionizing track at a fixed ÎČÎł\beta\gamma as a function of the track angle. The simulation and the beam test results will be described briefly in this issue.Comment: 2 pages, 4 figures, Proceedings of: PM202

    Measurement of the top quark forward-backward production asymmetry and the anomalous chromoelectric and chromomagnetic moments in pp collisions at √s = 13 TeV

    Abstract The parton-level top quark (t) forward-backward asymmetry and the anomalous chromoelectric (d̂ t) and chromomagnetic (Ό̂ t) moments have been measured using LHC pp collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV, collected in the CMS detector in a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb−1. The linearized variable AFB(1) is used to approximate the asymmetry. Candidate t t ÂŻ events decaying to a muon or electron and jets in final states with low and high Lorentz boosts are selected and reconstructed using a fit of the kinematic distributions of the decay products to those expected for t t ÂŻ final states. The values found for the parameters are AFB(1)=0.048−0.087+0.095(stat)−0.029+0.020(syst),Ό̂t=−0.024−0.009+0.013(stat)−0.011+0.016(syst), and a limit is placed on the magnitude of | d̂ t| < 0.03 at 95% confidence level.
