DETE

Physics and Technology of Detectors

The Detector group is strongly related to the particle physics group, for whom it develops silicon detectors and other detector techniques. The Detector group also builds on research and development of advanced silicon detector technologies which can be used far beyond the field of particle physics; for example in medical applications. Detector research and development is conducted in Laboratory of Advanced Detection Technologies (http://capads.fjfi.cvut.cz/).  

 

The work of the DETECTORS program will be organized into the following sub-programs:

A) Device simulation (Jiří Jakovenko)
B) Sensor development (Vladimír Kafka)
C) ASIC design and off-detector electronics (Miroslav Havránek)
D) Detector system architecture and applications (Michal Marčišovský)
E) Verification and evaluation (Lukáš Tomášek)

At the end of October 2019, Google (through an article in Nature) announced that it had reached the so-called quantum superiority, the moment when a quantum computer works much faster than a supercomputer of classical architecture. Virtually all the media brought the Google success story as well as the reaction of probably the biggest competitor […]
