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)

news from the program

Prof. Igor Jex, Director of CAAS project and Dean of the Faculty of Nuclear and Physical Engineering of CTU in Prague (FJFI), has been elected a member of The Academy of Europe (Academia Europaea). The Academy brings together scientific leaders from various fields of science, humanities and literature. It was founded in 1988 with the […]
The interaction between things and artists has the power to enrich all involved. This is why the PARTPHYS (Particle Physics) research programme of the Centre for Advanced Applied Science (CAAS) project has created a sub-programme Language for Science-Art-Public Communication. The process of preparation of the artefact and other activities within the sub-programme Language for Science-Art-Public Communication is also summarised in an electronic publication, which can be downloaded (pdf in Czech, 13 MB).
To demonstrate the so-called quantum supremacy of a quantum computer based on photons, Chinese scientists used a solution to a computational problem formulated at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (FNSPE). Specifically, the Gaussian Boson Sampling protocol, developed by Craig Hamilton and Igor Jex of the FNSPE and their partners, the group of Christine Silberhorn of the University of Paderborn (FRG). The research team of the Chinese University of Science and Technology published a report on the results on December 3, 2020 in the journal Science.
The largest ICHEP2020 particle physics conference, which took place between July 28 and 6 August 2020, attracted over 3,000 particle physicists. Originally, the organizers expected that about a thousand of them would arrive in Prague, but due to the pandemic, the plans had to change and the conference moved to the online environment. In total, […]
