We propose a relatively simple method to measure the event time in liquid Argon (LAr) neutrino detectors that takes advantage of the topological reconstruction of each event {\it prior} to a one-parameter' fit for the time using Precision-4D' photodetectors. A...
White Paper on use of large-area MCPs assembled without the usual bialkali cathodes as the active elements in sampling calorimeters.
We describe the design and underlying principles of a tungsten-filament gauge for the partial vapor pressure of cesium. Operation is based on the temperature depen- dence of electronic thermionic emission from a tungsten filament with a thermally equi- librated partial...
Summer 2019 note about MELZ photo-multiplier tubes.
Draft Testbeam Proposal
This little note proposes adding time-sliced information from muon monitors to the stroboscopic neutrino oscillation analysis. Specific proposals include a low intensity run before the halls get too hot to reach muons in the relevant kinematic range, and a description...
We report on performance results achieved for recently produced LAPPDs. LAPPDs is a good candidate to be employed in neutrino experiments (e.g. ANNIE [1], WATCHMAN [2], DUNE [3]), particle collider experiments (e.g. EIC [4]), neutrinoless double-beta decay experiments (e.g. THEIA...
Talk at TIPP, Amsterdam; June 2014
We present a technique for separating nuclear double beta-decay events from background 8B solar neutrino interactions in a liquid scintillator detector instrumented with photo-detectors with mm space and 100-psec time resolutions. The technique uses position and time information of detected...
This paper is about the development of a new method of real-time remote controlling of Droege High Voltage DC Power Supplies.
ADC data collected on an ACDC card with a generated 100 MHz sine wave input are analyzed with the goal of understanding the measurement noise in the system. Best fits to models are performed, and the residuals of the fits...

A report on work done to characterize the self-triggering feature on the PSEC4 ASIC.
Invited Talk at the 5th International Conference on Micro-Pattern Gas Detectors (MPGD2017); 22-26 May, 2017; Temple University, Philadelphia
Poster presentation at Neutrino 2018.
Talk given at the THEIA workshop at UC Davis
This is a brief stab at understanding the balance of gas load and getter capacity. A lot of this may be wrong- that's the point of writing it down for others to read, so please read critically. Also there are...
An x-ray detector based on MCPs. An MCP ALD-coated with tungsten (thermally oxidized after coating) serves as an x-ray photocathode that matches the x-ray stopping depth to the electron escape depth. X-rays hit pore walls at grazing incidence, so that...
