Future Experiments seek Smart Technologies

Project description

Detecting the best gaseous ionisation detectors

A gas electron multiplier (GEM) is a type of gaseous ionisation detector used in particle physics. GEMs are one of the class of micropattern gaseous detectors, which includes micromegas and other technologies. Future detectors need improved production techniques to facilitate their industrialisation for other non-academic applications like security and medical imaging applications. The EU-funded FEST project will develop techniques for better production yield and reduced construction time, allowing also for a significant cost reduction. This is one of the main goals of this project. It will also perform Monte Carlo simulations of future experiments that will improve and update event generators to the new experimental scenarios.
