Detector technologies

A new home for GEM detectors at CERN

by Rui De Oliveira (CERN)

A new building at CERN is ready to house ongoing R&D activities that will push the performance of detectors to cope with the high performance of the LHC.

The workshop on medical applications of spectroscopic X-ray detectors (specXray) brings together specialists in the field from physics, medical research and industry meet to exchange experience and knowledge.
