CERN Accelerating science

Electronics systems for experiments group

2014: A busy year for the ESE group

by Philippe Farthouat

ESE has three families of activities: services, developments and/or maintenance for specific experiments or projects and developments of components of general interest and in 2014 important progress has been made on all fronts.

RD53: Development of pixel readout integrated circuits for extreme rate and radiation.

by Jorgen Christiansen and Mauricio Garcia-Scriveres on behalf of the RD53 Collaboration

The recently formed RD53 collaboration will address the challenges of phase 2 pixel detector upgrades of ATLAS and CMS as well as long-term challenges for LCD.

The history of microelectronics at CERN, initiated thanks to the LAA project, provides important lessons as we are now starting to exploit new science and new technologies

Rafael Ballabriga Sune has been awarded with the 2013 Radiation Instrumentation Early Career Award by the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society for the implementation of a new approach to spectroscopic X-ray imaging.

Medipix hybrid pixel detectors produce images with high resolution, high contrast and almost no noise, making them excellent for use in medical imaging and a broad range of applications involving radiation detection. 

Medipix presented at TEDx@CERN

by Michael Campbell

On May 3rd CERN hosted the TEDx@CERN event. Among the speakers was Dr. Becky Parker 'You're Never Too Young To Be a Research Scientist'. Becky and her students have been in contact with the ESE-based Medipix team for the last seven  years.

After several years of work the ESE group ready to deliver new devices and serviceses to the HEP community in the fields of: IC technologies and common building blocks (WP1), On-detector power distribution (WP2) and Radiation hard optical link (WP3).
