Examples of Recent Contributions on Engineering for Particle Physics

In what follows we describe some examples of contributions from our group to Particle Physics experiments, both mechanical or electronics developments.

  • ASIC DEVELOPMENT FOR CTA EXPERIMENT
  • uTCA BOARD FOR CMS EXPERIMENT PHASE 1 UPGRADE
  • CTA CHAMBER CONSTRUCTION
  • HV SPLITTER BOARDS FOR DOUBLE CHOOZ DETECTOR
  • READOUT BOARD FOR CALICE EXPERIMENT
  • DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF THE CMS SHIELDING
  • DESIGN OF THE NEW ON DETECTOR BOARD FOR HL-LHC CMS DRIFT TUBES

Our group has developed an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) to be used in the CTA (Cherenkov Telescope Array) experiment. This ASIC implements the logic to determine whether the camera has to be read based on the analog signal provided by the camera.  Each camera has 265 of these ASICs, which have been approved for installation in the first camera of the large size telescope. These ASICs have already been produced, tested and have been delivered for integration into electronic boards for the camera of the first large size telescope. As for the signal distribution system, these ASICs are being evaluated for their use in the medium size telescopes.
