The powerful particle identification detection system of the PANDA (antiProton ANihilations at DArmstadt) experiment contains three Cherenkov detectors. In the forward direction a conventional RICH detector is planned. In the high solenoid field of the target spectrometer thin Cherenkov detectors using the DIRC principle are mandatory and are envisaged in the form of a barrel and a vertical disc. The combination of the time of arrival of the photons with their spatial image determines not only the particle velocity, but also the wavelength of the photons. Therefore dispersion corrections on the lower and upper detection threshold is possible. Investigations concerning the development of a 3D-Barrel-DIRC are discussed as well as two different studies realizing a new Disc-DIRC for the forward angles. One is based on the Time of Propagation (ToP) method the other on the readout with focusing light guides. (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
