Objectives
The main objective of this work package is to develop beyond state-of-the-art detector technology for the instrumentation of the two Russian megacience projects NICA and PIK as well as the ESFRI projects ESS and FAIR and other European research infrastructures. The work within WP7 also fosters synergy effects in detector technology of thermal and cold neutron beams at ESS and PIK on the one side, and nuclear and high energy physics on the other.

  • The development of large-size, fast monolithic CMOS pixel sensors (MAPS) and their integration to a high-rate silicon tracker of extremely low material budget, strategic goal X/Xo < 1% for the full tracker
  • MAPS-CMOS technologies for silicon trackers
  • New methods for effective integration of MAPS sensors
  • The development of next generation of neutron detectors
  • Training of next generation of neutron detector experts in Russia as well as in Europe
  • School for young scientists on particle detection technologies

Four partners (CERN, ESRF, European XFEL, ILL) are also engaged in the H2020 ATTRACT project, thus extending the informal scientific network for mutual knowledge exchange.
