Abstract

We have tested the first 4T Monolithic Active Pixel Sensor (MAPS) for particle physics, FORTIS in a beam test. We have measured a signal-to-noise ratio of more than 100 for MIPs due to the excellent noise performance of the 4T architecture. Two versions of the sensor were tested; with and without deep P-well areas in-pixel. The deep P-well areas allow the incorporation of PMOS transistors inside the pixels without signal charge loss. The measured position resolutions were around 2 μm.
