BIST Workshop on Detector Technologies for High Energy Physics

Friday 12 July 2019, 09:00am

Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST), Barcelona

Organised by Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST)

ICN2 Involved Reseacher: Klaas-Jan Tielrooij , Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale Systems Junior Group Leader

The goal of the event is to explore novel technologies from the Material Science and Nanotechnology side that can make a disruptive impact on High Energy Physics instrumentation, sparking collaborations between different groups working on detector technology and related topics.

The workshop is coordinated by Dmitri Efetov (ICFO), Sebastian Grinstein (IFAE), Thorsten Lux (IFAE) and Klaas-Jan Tielrooij (ICN2). 

The program will feature several main talks contributed by the participating BIST institutes, starting with the description of experimental techniques currently exploited by the high energy physics community, from accelerator based experiments (ATLAS at CERN´s LHC) to gravitational waves detectors (VIRGO). This will be followed by presentations of detector schemes based on new emerging materials, such as 2D materials.

The workshop will be closed by an open discussion session and some drinks. Attending the workshop is free of charge. Lunch will be provided. If you are interested in attending, please sign up online. If you are interested in actively participating with an oral contribution, we encourage you to contact one of the organizers.
