Monolithic Multi-Junction Picosecond Avalanche Detector for future physics experiments and applications

Project description

Novel silicon pixel detectors with picosecond time resolution

Silicon detectors are widely used in experiments in particle physics. The EU-funded MONOLITH project plans to design a novel silicon pixel sensor that can detect particles on the picosecond time scale with high spatial resolution. The new sensor will combine simplified assembly processes and reduced production costs offered by standard CMOS processes. The innovative technology will be a groundbreaking instrument for future nuclear and particle physics experiments as well as space-borne physics experiments. It could also have an impact on several other fields such as high-precision Lidar systems, time-of-flight PET scanners and biological imaging.
