30 November 2009 to 4 December 2009
INFN - Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati
Europe/Rome timezone

The aim of the course is to enable INFN researchers to improve their awareness and knowledge on the present status, current limits and future developments in novel detection techniques and related aspects (simulation, signal acquisition, tracking, particle identification,...).

The course is structured as follows: morning sessions will be devoted to lectures given by world-wide recognized detector experts, whereas, in the afternoons, “hands-on” laboratory sessions will allow participants to taste state-of-the-art detectors.


Lecture Topics:

  • Channeling Radiation
  • Liquid Argon Detectors
  • Micro Pattern Gas Detectors
  • Monolithic Pixels for Innovative Silicon Trackers
  • Nanotube Technology
  • Particle Identification Systems for Super B-factories (PID)
  • Photodetectors for Medical Imaging
  • Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM)

Laboratory Topics:

  • Gas Electron Multiplier Detectors (GEM)
  • Medical Imaging
  • Nanotube Technology based Detectors
  • Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM)
  • Single photon detection using Thick Gas Electron Multiplier (THGEM)


Attendance to the School will be limited to 30 young INFN researchers.
Participants are expected to attend the school for its full duration.

The application procedure is available here.
In addition a short scientific curriculum (max 3000 characters) must be sent by e-mail to the conference e-mail address: snri09@lnf.infn.it

Non INFN staff researchers can apply sending their application by e-mail to the conference address: snri09@lnf.infn.it

The deadline is October 09, 2009

The selection of the participants will be made by the Scientific Committee of the School.
The acceptance will be notified by email within October 23, 2009
