Time and position resolution of the scintillator strips for a muon system at future colliders

The state of the art low-noise SiPM from Hamamatsu features excellent photon-number resolution and triggering at the single-photon level. There are two recent publications related to this study NIM A848 and NIM A832 .

Various designs of scintillator strips with WLS fibers and SiPM readout for the muon system were tested for time and position resolution in the muon beam of the Fermilab Test Beam Facility.
