Abstract
This thesis project was carried out in department of physics (Division of exper-
imental nuclear and particle physics), University of Basel, Switzerland.
The PANDA (Anti-proton Annihilations at Darmstadt) experiment is one of
the biggest projects at the new FAIR (Facility for Anti-proton and Ion Research)
facility in Darmstadt. The main purpose of the PANDA experiment is to study
Hadron spectroscopy, Nucleon structure and Hyper-nuclei using the interaction
between antiprotons and protons (as fixed target). Scientists were working
successfully on the idea of antiproton projects at LEAR/CERN and the Fermi-
lab antiproton accumulator, which lead to initiate the PANDA project.

The University of Basel (Physics department) is collaborating in the PANDA
project in particular on the design and test of special preamplifier circuits for
the readout of the electromagnetic calorimeter (EMC) which is a major sub-
unit of the detector. The Forward part of the EMC consists of 3856 PWO
II crystals and each crystal will be equipped either with one Vacuum-Photo-
Tetrode (VPTT) or with two Large Area Avalanche Photo-diodes (LAAPDs).
For the readout of the PANDA EMC, special types of pre-amplifiers (LNP) are
needed to be developed.
Some of the development for low noise/ low power (LNP) preamplifier has
already been done at Basel University (Physics department). The expected
timeline for the further development, production, testing and sorting of LNP
would end in 2015. (Less)
