Photosensors and Signal Processing in Particle Detectors
Newton-Raum (01-122) (Institut für Physik, JGU Mainz)
Institut für Physik, JGU Mainz
The School addresses master students and beginning Ph.D. students aiming to work with particle detectors based on photosensors. It will introduce the concepts and technologies including light creation, propagation and detection as well as the associated electronics for signal processing and digitization.
Morning sessions will consist of lectures, which cover the fundamentals and prepare for the afternoon laboratories. Working in small groups, the participants will get acquainted with the subjects through practical exercises: Silicon Photomultiplier characterization, circuit simulation and cosmic-ray muon detection.
