"Proton Detectors at D0 and ATLAS"

Andrew Brandt
University of Texas-Arlington


Abstract:

This colloquium discusses the motivation for adding proton detectors upstream and downstream of the massive multi-purpose D0 and ATLAS detectors. First results from a completed analysis of elastic scattering using the D0 Forward Proton Detector will be presented. In addition the proposed project to add proton detectors to ATLAS will be discussed, focusing on the development of a new time-of-flight detector with unprecedented resolution, on the ten picosecond level.
