In science:

Studies based on the concept of a digital ECAL (DECAL) started in 2006.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee
Since 2008, the groups involved in the DECAL work are also members of the UK SPiDeR collaboration, as the sensor implementation is likely to use Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors (MAPS) in CMOS.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee
The basic idea of a DECAL is to use very fine granularity silicon sensors with binary pixel readout for the active layers of a silicon-tungsten ECAL, so as to make an estimate of the number of charged particles in each layer.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee
This would allow the DECAL to be a “swap-in” option for a silicon-tungsten ECAL.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee
The one remaining detector which is yet to complete a physics prototype detector is the DECAL; this is expected to be achieved by 2012. A new initiative has been started in order to study the properties of tungsten as aborber material, primarily for an HCAL at a multi-TeV collider, but possibly also for the ILC.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee
Such a high availability of testbeam areas would also allow for an easier conduction of smaller testbeam programs as for example with the DECAL, which has had a somewhat uncertain time scale due to funding issues in the UK.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee
The studies of a digital ECAL (DECAL) continue in the UK, in spite of very significant funding difficulties.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee, April 2011
In Dec. 2008, the STFC Executive recommended sufficient funding to allow the SPiDER Collaboration to construct a full physics prototype DECAL, as outlined in .
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee, April 2011
The UK groups in SPiDER have demonstrated that the INMAPS technology developed specifically for the DECAL application is viable in terms of basic pixel efficiency.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee, April 2011
The EUDET telescope was located upstream of the DECAL test stand, as shown in Figure 17.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee, April 2011
It is no longer an option to plan for a physics prototype DECAL and the short-term future of the DECAL project is extremely uncertain at present. A programme of radiation hardness testing is in progress during 2011, using X-ray sources at RAL, and may be extended to include neutrons and protons.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee, April 2011
Due to funding problems there are currently no beam test plans for the DECAL.
CALICE Report to the DESY Physics Research Committee, April 2011
Ongoing analysis of SNDICE data may also give us a final understanding of the MegaCam filter passbands. A comparable device (Stubbs et al. 2010) has aided in the calibration of the Pan-STARRS instrument; the Dark Energy Survey is taking a similar approach with DECal (Rheault et al. 2012).
