A new timing detector measuring â¼50MeV/c positrons is under development for the MEG II experiment, aiming at a time resolution Ïtâ¼30ps. The resolution is expected to be achieved by measuring each positron time with multiple counters made of plastic scintillator readout by silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs). The purpose of this work is to demonstrate the time resolution for â¼50MeV/c positrons using prototype counters. Counters with dimensions of 90Ã40Ã5 mm3readout by six SiPMs (three on each 40Ã5 mm2plane) were built with SiPMs from Hamamatsu Photonics and AdvanSiD and tested in a positron beam at the DAÎ¦NE Beam Test Facility. The time resolution was found to improve nearly as the square root of the number of counter hits. A time resolution Ït=26.2Â±1.3 ps was obtained with eight counters with Hamamatsu SiPMs. These results suggest that the design resolution is achievable in the MEG II experiment.
