The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) is organizing a one-day workshop on “Detector Technologies for High Energy Physics”, taking place on Friday July 12th 2019. The goal of the event, which will be hosted at the BIST Headquarters in Barcelona, is to explore novel technologies in the area of Material Science and Nanotechnology, that could make a disruptive impact on High Energy Physics instrumentation, generating collaborations among various groups working on detector technology and related topics. The workshop will be coordinated by Dmitri Efetov (ICFO), Sebastian Grinstein (IFAE), Thorsten Lux (IFAE) and Klaas-Jan Tielrooij (ICN2).
The programme will feature several main talks contributed by the participating BIST institutes, starting with the description of experimental techniques currently exploited by the high energy physics community, from accelerator based experiments (ATLAS at CER’s LHC) to gravitational waves detectors (VIRGO). This will be followed by presentations of detector schemes based on new emerging materials, such as 2D materials. The workshop will finish with an open discussion session and refreshments.
