Abstract

TORCH is a novel detector concept for high resolution time-of-flight measurement over large areas, which has been developed for application in a future upgrade of the LHCb experiment. The status of the R&D project is presented, including the development of suitable fast photon detectors, and test-beam studies of prototypes.
