CMS Pixel Detektor for LHC
Modern particle and astrophysics fascinates with spectacular discoveries, such as the Higgs boson and the first indications of gravitational waves.
There are a wide variety of research institutions around the world that are investigating the structure of matter and its interactions.
The physical models are tested at the large-scale research facilities by colliding high-energy particles and analysing the resulting reaction products. The distribution in the particle, energy and momentum balance allows conclusions to be drawn about the properties of the presumed new particles.
Since 1996, CiS has developed various technologies and detectors for tracking particles in large-scale experiments, especially ATLAS, CMS and ALICE at CERN, CMB at GSI / FAIR and DESY.
Super radiation-hard PIXEL detectors for tracking close to the collision points:
Double-sided structured pixel detectors for the upgrades of the innermost detector layers of the large-scale experiments CMS and ATLAS:
- Defect engineering to improve beam hardness
- Very thin, large-area detectors: 150 … 285 µm thick
- Adaptation to subsequent construction technologies
- Under-bump metallisation of the pixels
