Abstract

The barrel-Time-of-Flight detector is one of the outer layers of the multi-layer design of the PANDA target spectrometer. PANDA, which is being built at the FAIR facility, will use cooled antiprotons on a fixed Hydrogen or nuclei target, to study broad topics in hadron physics. The detector is designed to achieve a time resolution below 100 ps and provides the interaction times of events as well as the particle ID. The B-TOF is designed with a minimal material budget in mind mainly consisting of 5 mm thin plastic scintillator tiles read out by a serial connection of 4 SiPMs. The signal transmission is embedded in large 16 layer PCB in micro strip lines. We will first review the detector concept which is described in the TDR then some more recent developments, with a study of different PCB layouts for signal transmission, the readout with the TOFPET2 ASIC and its performance and presenting the results of a study on the influence of the scintillator thickness on the time resolution.
