The conference “SiPM workshop: from fundamental research to industrial applications” will be held in Bari, Italy from October 2, 2019 to October 4, 2019.
The conference is organized by Università degli Studi di Bari, Politecnico di Bari and Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare di Bari.
The main goal of the workshop is to review the main fields in which Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) are being employed, understand the present limitations and define R&D goals for their improvement.
Many experiments in medical, particle and astroparticle physics are adopting SiPMs for existing detectors or for future upgrades, with different requirements in terms of performances and operating conditions of these devices, for example cryogenic temperatures, space environments, high-intensity radiation, low to high light intensities, wavelengths from vacuum ultraviolet to infrared.
Applications involving medical imaging are also exploring SiPMs for the construction of detectors with high granularity with a relative low cost per channel.
Experts from different fields will meet to review SiPM requirements in their respective area of interest and discuss solutions, including most recent and emerging developments in SiPM design and production, front-end electronics, and new characterization methods for optimizing SiPM performances.
Participation from industry is welcomed and desired.
The workshop will cover the following topics:
- New development and characterization methods
- High-energy and nuclear experiments
- Astroparticle and space applications
- Medical applications
- Industrial development
