A new timing detector has been developed to measure â¼50Â MeV/c positrons with a time resolution of Ïtâ30ps in the MEG II experiment. The detector are segmented into 512 scintillation counters, each of which consists of 120Ã(40or50)Ã5mm3 size BC-422 and two arrays of six AdvanSiD silicon photomultipliers. The single-counter resolutions are measured to be 70â80Â ps. The counter layout is optimized to get the maximum number of hit counters (on average 9 for signal positrons). This multiple-counters measurement leads to a significant improvement in the time resolution down to 30Â ps. Using the first one-fourth (128) counters, a pilot run was carried out using the MEG II beam of 7Ã107Î¼+/s and the basic functionality was tested.
