原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)The CT-PPS detector will be installed close to the beam line on both sides of CMS, 200m downstream the interaction point. This detector will measure forward scattered protons, allowing detailed studies of diffractive hadron physics and Central Exclusive Production. The main components of the CT-PPS detector are a silicon tracking system and a timing system. In this contribution we present the proposal of an innovative solution for the timing system, based on Ultra-Fast Silicon Detectors (UFSD). UFSD are a novel concept of silicon detectors potentially able to obtain the necessary time resolution (∼20ps on the proton arrival time). The use of UFSD has also other attractive features as its material budget is small and the pixel geometries...
