  1. Rad Hard SiGe ADC for Detector Applications

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP INC            Topic: 47a

    Particle accelerators require detector designs that possess high dynamic range and wide bandwidths, and are hardened to withstand radiation effects during physics experiments. A critical component in the detector is the analog-to-digital converter (ADC), which must have excellent linearity to eliminate measurement errors. This project will develop a high speed silicon germanium (SiGe)-based ADC wi ...

  2. Advanced Detector Prognostics/Health Monitoring (DPHM) System

    SBC: RIDGETOP GROUP INC            Topic: 34c

    Nuclear Physics (NP) experiments require the installation and maintenance of a large number of very sensitive detectors that are arranged along the beam line. Thousands of these detectors must function well in order to capture low-level signals and assure the success of the experiments. The detector electronics are subject to the performance-damaging effects of aging, heat, and radiation. In order ...
