TOFtracker: combination of time-of-flight and high-accuracy bidimensional tracking in a single gaseous detector

A 5-gap timing RPC equipped with patterned electrodes coupled to both charge-sensitive and
timing circuits yields a time accuracy of 77 ps along with a position accuracy of 38 μm. These

A 5-gap timing RPC equipped with patterned electrodes coupled to both charge-sensitive and
timing circuits yields a time accuracy of 77 ps along with a position accuracy of 38 μm. These
results were obtained by calculating the straight-line fit residuals to the positions provided by a
3-layer telescope made out of identical detectors, detecting almost perpendicular cosmic-ray
muons. The device may be useful for particle identification by time-of-flight, where
simultaneous measurements of trajectory and time are necessary.
