Description

Signal formation in detectors

The lectures will cover the basic principles of particle detection as
well as examples of modern particle detection techniques. After
reviewing some of the history of the field, the physical principles of
interaction of particles with matter and the related signal creation in
particle detectors are discussed. These principles will be illustrated
by existing detector systems including first performance results of the
LHC detectors.
