The School addresses master students, Ph.D. students, and postdoctoral researchers aiming to work with particle detectors based on photosensors and FPGAs. It will introduce the concepts and technologies including light creation, propagation and detection as well as the associated electronics for signal acquisition.
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, FPGA programming and cosmic-ray muon detection.
