 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The challenging questions of particle physics, like the origin of mass, the existence of new forms and states of matter, can only be addressed in technically complex and expensive large-scale research facilities. Well coordinated international effort is required to design, build and operate world class infrastructure comprising accelerators of highest energy and/or intensity and detector systems of unprecedented performance. Frequently the quality of the results and hence the progress of science is limited by the quality of the detectors and by the level of understanding of their characteristics and performance. Future detectors need to cap current state-of-the art performance in terms of position and energy resolution, number and density of read-out channels, dynamic range and noise, speed, radiation tolerance, robustness and reliability. We propose an Initial Training Network on Particle Detectors which spans 4 years. A multi-site network has been formed which comprises 9 academic participants, 3 associated industrial partners and 2 associated academic partners from 9 European countries. It will provide extraordinary training opportunities to young researchers (physicists and engineers) in the field of radiation detectors. The proposed Training Network will play an essential role to train a new generation of excellent detector scientists which is required to conceive, design, build and exploit the next generation of experiments which may come into operation in the years 2012-2020. Internationally renowned supervisors will provide scientific and technical training at the highest level. The trainees will be integrated in existing collaborative structures and profit from a unique spectrum of expertise and facilities available in the network. Complementary training, involving particularly our industrial partners, e.g. in communication skills, project and financial management, is an integral part of the programme.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU-funded project aimed to help young researchers acquire the skills to design and build particle detectors for future high-energy accelerators with unprecedented performance.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Often research outcome quality and subsequently scientific progress are limited by detector quality and limited understanding of their characteristics and performance. Future detectors need to outperform state-of-the-art ones in terms of energy resolution, dynamic range and noise, speed, radiation tolerance, and robustness and reliability.

With EU funding, the 'Marie Curie training network on particle detectors' (http://mc-pad.web.cern.ch/mc-pad/ (MC-PAD)) project sought to equip young researchers and future science leaders with skills and know-how in particle detectors. Project consortium consisted of experts in designing and fabricating state-of-the-art particle detectors, as well as small- and medium-sized enterprises.

Through an initial training network, the project trained young researchers on conceiving, designing, building and exploiting detectors for the next generation of experiments. Researchers worked on some major European projects, specifically on principles, components, microelectronics and analysis software of new detectors. Applications in medical imaging were also included.

Researchers were mostly based at one of the participating institutes, supervised by internationally recognised experts, and had access to state-of-the-art equipment. Complementary training courses on related fields supplemented hands-on laboratory training.

Several conferences, meetings and other events at regional and international levels enhanced visibility of project activities. MC-PAD should contribute to designing, building and operating world-class infrastructure in the long term leading to resolution of challenging questions in particle physics.
