Lab Setup
• 1060nm laser
• via Maurice
Glaser
•Laser width = 20ns
•2 attenuators
•Rising edge of
Timepix shutter
triggers the start of
the delay for the
laser pulse.
•~6.5μs delay
•3Hz laser pulse
• Many degrees of
freedom for motion
Thanks to Jan and
Richard!

TOT Counts
Testbeam response of the timepix assembly showed that the total charge in the
clusters created by minimum ionizing particles had a clear dependence on the number of
pixels in the clusters: for each extra pixel in the cluster, an extra ~25 counts were seen.

Investigation of offset
with
Test
Pulses
Test Pulse Data
TOT Counts
Using the new test pulse facility,
we can show that this is an
intrinsic property of the Timepix
response:
*There is an offset in the
relationship between deposited
charge and pixel response.
Test Pulse Charge (arbitrary scale)
This could be digitally removed in a
future version of the chip, in order
to optimize our use of the bits
available.
Data and fits thanks to Atreyi,

*Small change in the TOT, gives a handle on the
measurement accuracy
*Fit indicates any drift - more linear than expected.

Results
Over 10 pixels, the variation in the measured
TOT never exceeds 5.5 counts.
Each individual measurement shows a
spread of about 5%. This comes from a
combination of variation in laser power,
and variation in pixel response
Mean % = 4.23%

Timewalk:
Laser Method
1. Use the laser to illuminate a group of pixels.
2. Ensure that over 100 events the TOT is
stable to ~5%.
3. Switch to TOA mode.
4. Look at timewalk as a function of input
charge
5. Chessboard correction needed
Y-Axis TOA: Method of extraction
1. Get TOA of each pixel
2. Subtract it from the central pixel to get a
ΔrawTOA per pixel.
3. Mean of this ΔrawTOA*25ns is y-axis
quantity.

Conclusions
• The offset of multiple pixel clusters exists and is
consistent between all measurements, but not
necessarily a constant
• Pixel to pixel variation is very small ~5.5 TOT
counts
• The timewalk is visible at the minimum
ionization particle energy (~50 TOT counts)
• Preamplifier DAC value does not seem to effect
the timewalk
• Preamplifier DAC value 255 seems unstable in
laser measurements
• Timewalk slightly off between test pulse and
laser data

Conclusion
and Future Studies
• Important measurements can be done
with laser
• A new 660nm laser now in use
– Smaller penetration depth
