Workshop FUTURE of Silicon Detector Technologies


With the workshop FUTURE of Silicon Detector Technologies, exciting research and development tasks in the field of high-energy physics and related device development were again discussed.
Dr. Pernegger (Switzerland) opened the event with his keynote lecture on the future of Silicon Tracker at CERN. He gave an overview from the beginnings of research up to the upcoming new experiments, which should give new insights into the development of our world after the reconstruction in 2020.
Prof. Yoshikawa, Yokohama National University (Japan) pointed out the importance of data acquisition and the electronics required for this.

The two-day workshop focused on topics such as detectors for high-energy and heavy ion physics as well as requirements and solutions for a wide range of applications. These included topics such as

  • Spectroscopy of low-energy particles
  • Detectors for quantum optical applications
  • Micro-optical precision assembly
  • Faulty engineering in silicon
  • Design and Simulation

Especially the interdisciplinary approach of looking at questions from different perspectives lead to intensive discussions with new insights and plans.
These are good prerequisites for making the 5th International Workshop 2019 informative and attractive. The organisers were CiS e.V., the CiS Forschungsinstitut für Mikrosensorik GmbH, the Institute of Advanced Sciences of the Yokohama National University and the Impulse Region Erfurt-Weimar-Jena.
