Current research activities?

Cryogenic tracking detectors (CERN rd39); Si and GaN as well as diamond sensors (CERN CMS); Radiation hard semiconductor devices for very high luminosity colliders (CERN rd50); contactless, in situ and remote control of radiation damage and dosimetry for Advanced European Infrastructures for Detectors at Accelerators (CERN project AIDA-2020).

Field of interest within the Center?

Analysis of particle sensor signals, spectroscopy of radiation defects, design and fabrication of dosimeters and sensors for contactless monitoring of large areas impacted by large hadron fluences, search for materials, technologies and sensor design modifications capable to withstand the high luminosity irradiations
