Abstract
The goal of this R&D has been to reach the time resolution needed for Time- of-Flight detectors using the Multigap Resistive Plate Chamber (MRPC). We p resent here a MRPC with a time resolution of 70 ps. This prototype has been studied within the R&D program for the very large area TOF array of the AL ICE experiment at the CERN LHC.
