We have been in the process of developing the ARICH detector for identifying charged $\pi $ and $K$ mesons in a super-B factory experiment (Belle II) to be performed at the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), Japan. The ARICH detector is a ring-imaging Cherenkov counter that uses silica aerogel as a radiator and hybrid avalanche photo-detectors as position-sensitive...

The Belle II spectrometer, an upgrade of the Belle detector, is under construction together with the SuperKEKB electron-positron accelerator at KEK in Japan to search for the New Physics beyond the Standard Model using 50 times higher statistics of $e^+-e^-$ collisions of the Belle experiment. An aerogel ring imaging Cherenkov (ARICH) counter will be installed into the end cap region of the...

The Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment (CBM) is one of the big experiments of the international Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Darmstadt, Germany. CBM aims to investigate rare probes such as charmed hadrons, multiple strange baryons, di-electrons and di-muons as messengers of the dense phase of strongly interacting matter with unprecedented accuracy. This is achieved by...

The PANDA detector at the future FAIR facility at GSI is planned as a fixed-target experiment for proton-antiproton collisions at momenta between 1.5 and 15\,GeV/c. It will be used to address open questions in hadronic physics. In order to achieve excellent particle identification, two different DIRC detector concepts have been developed. This talk describes the Endcap Disc DIRC detector,...

The PANDA experiment at the new FAIR facility at GSI will perform high precision experiments in the strange and charm quark sector using cooled beams of antiprotons at high luminosity, in the momentum range of 1.5 GeV/c to 15 GeV/c. For the identification of low momentum charged particles with extreme accuracy, the barrel time-of-flight (TOF) detector is one of the key components of PANDA. Its...

High precision flavor physics measurements are an essential complement to the direct searches for new physics at the LHC. Such measurements will be performed using the upgraded Belle II detector that will take data at the SuperKEKB accelerator. With an anticipated 40-fold increase in the integrated luminosity of KEKB, the detector systems must operate efficiently at much higher rates than the...
