EURIZON detector school


Monday, 17 July, 2023 to Friday, 28 July, 2023


The Detector School is organized for training young scientists on state-of-the-art particle detection technologies in the fields of particle-, heavy-ion- and neutron-physics.

The main program of the school comprises morning lectures by world experts in their fields, and hands-on exercises on various technologies in the afternoons. Social activities are organised during evenings and on the weekend.

List of lecture topics:

  • Calorimetry
  • Characterization of detectors
  • Communication in science, presentation skills
  • Evolution on working detector systems from R&D to construction, operation and performance
  • Gaseous detectors
  • Neutron detectors
  • Non-collider detectors
  • Particle identification
  • Photon detection
  • Quantum sensing
  • Readout- FPGA- trigger- DAQ- synchronisation
  • Silicon detectors
  • Tracking

The school will include also elective practical courses that will allow the school attendees to put their hands on various detectors and test them under the supervision of experts. Preliminary exercise list:

  • Cosmo boxes
  • Do-It-Yourself particle detector
  • Drift Tubes characterization
  • Geant4 simulation software
  • Landau distribution with SiStrip
  • Monte-Carlo Resolution with SiPixel
  • Micro-Pattern Gaseous Detector lab
  • ROOT analysis software
  • SiPixel characterization
  • SiPM characterization
  • Testbeam data analysis with SiPixel

Students will be given opportunity to present their work. This activity will connect closely with the science communication tutorial

Please note: In case safety imperatives will require a relocation of the school, the school will be organised on the same dates at the University of Wuppertal, Germany.
