I am a Research Fellow at the
Physics Experiments Group of the
Department of Physics and Astronomy at
The University of Edinburgh.
Since 1999 I am a member of the
LHC-b Collaboration and working on the
Multianode Photomultiplier readout of the
LHC-b RICH detector.
For the peer review by PPARC in March 2000 I have prepared two posters
showing our work: a
general LHCb RICH one (6Mb)
and one presenting our own contribution (26Mb)
and proposal of Multianode Photomultipliers (MaPMT) as photodetector choice for the RICH.
Meanwhile we have summed up our testbeam results in a
paper submitted to NIM (final draft: 2.2Mb),
and a second paper of more specific lab results is to be submitted as soon
as another test series here in the Edinburgh lab is completed.
Previously, in 1998, I obtained my PhD at the
University of Freiburg,
Germany, working for the
on the topic:
... and yes, it's is running, indeed ;-)
This analysis didn't lead to a ZEUS publication because
a: the gain in the statistics wrt. the previous analysis was regarded as
too less and
b: the systematic error due to the alphas dependence of
the PDF wasn't disentagled yet.
DESY01-18 / hep-ex/0102042 (700kb)
is the closest ZEUS publication to my own work.
It is based on the work of
who pursued this analysis to the end.
And before that I finished my Diploma thesis within the
in 1994 on the topic:
Konstruktive und apperative Entwicklungen zum Laser-Monitorsystem
des EDDA-Detekors bei COSY.
(diploma thesis: in German)
complying to the collaboration rules
LHCb at Edinburgh
(update to more recent result is pending ...)
