Pixel party

25 July 2013 Three detector R&D collaborations working on tomorrow's pixel detectors for charged particles joined forces in a combined test in a beam of particles. With the successful read-out of the three devices in a single data acquisition, they reach another milestone of the EU-sponsored AIDA Project. Work continues towards a more versatile telescope infrastructure to be made available to a broad user community. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , , , , ,

A telescope road movie

| 10 June 2010 I don't usually start stories for ILC NewsLine with the word 'I'. This time I have to make an exception, because for a change I was not merely a spectator and communicator of science, but a facilitator (of sorts). One of the actors in something both very mundane and very exciting: transporting scientific equipment from one lab to another. On Sunday 30 May, the EUDET beam telescope was brought from DESY to CERN, and I was one of its (three) drivers. Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

A user-friendly beam telescope for the ILC – Mission: possible

| 16 July 2009 Ingrid Gregor and her team will have a very busy summer. As a particle physicist, she coordinates a successful device for test beam infrastructures, the EUDET telescope, which is fully booked at CERN during the next four months. In her rare spare time, she also experiences the joys of blogging as she just joined the team of the ILC Quantum Diarists. Category: Feature | Tagged: , ,

Telescope arms open wide

| 18 October 2007 The EUDET telescope, a high-precision device that lets detector developers check the accuracy of their prototype by using particle beams and the EUDET telescope and comparing with accurately its determined tracks, has just finished a marathon in test beams around Europe. During six weeks in beams at DESY and CERN its makers tested it to the core and are now happy to pass their instrument on to users. Category: Feature | Tagged: , , ,

EUDET’s Telescope

| 28 June 2007 Those scientists who develop detectors know a few magic words. Test beam is one, chip is one, DAQ is one. Telescope is another – and a prototype of one of these detector R&D ‘wands’ has just been tested in DESY’s 6-GeV electron beam as part of EUDET’s ‘Joint Research Activity 1’. EUDET is a Europe-funded and Europe-wide project for detector R&D, and one of its core activities is to test beam infrastructures – which include the telescope. It was also the first real test beam since the start of this EUDET activity. Category: Feature | Tagged: ,
