Detecting Signals into the Noise. In Memoriam: Franco Manfredi
Aula Volta (Università degli Studi di Pavia)
Università degli Studi di Pavia
Corso Strada Nuova 65, I- 27100 Pavia, Italy
During his scientific career, Franco Manfredi oriented his research interests to radiation detectors, detector signal processing, noise limits in electron devices and front-end electronics for different detector applications. He led international projects in the area of low-noise front-end systems for the acquisition and processing of signals from radiation detectors in nuclear and elementary particle physics. His work was strongly inspired by his belief that front-end electronics developments are among the main forces responsible for the progress in physics.
The invited presentations in this workshop will outline how Franco’s scientific work and ideas are still inspiring current research projects and activities in the field of detector front-end electronics, from mixed-signal CMOS rad-hard readout chips to very low-noise analog processing circuits for high-resolution silicon detectors.
