Abstract

Design and construction details are presented of a four-layer, position sensitive, cathode strip chamber and a low cost, highly multiplexed readout system based on monolithic circuit technology that are well suited for a muon detector at future hadron colliders. Track location is determined by interpolation of the cathode induced charge, using a new design with intermediate strips between readout nodes to reduce the number of channels and improve position resolution and linearity. Results are reported from tests with an 55Fe source and a 300 GeV/c muon beam in RD5 at CERN. The beam test demonstrated position resolution of 40 μm per layer which is less than 1% of the readout pitch. The timing resolution for the entire four-layer detector was 3.6 ns r.m.s. which is adequate for fully efficient beam crossing identification in an LHC experiment.
