      The art of calorimetry

      Calorimeters are one of the most versatile component of a modern
      detector.
      From energy measurement to particle identification,
      from time resolution to ``tracking'', to fast trigger capability,
      they offer excellent performance on a large variety of applications.
      An art older than 100 years, which still offers secrets to unveil
      and challenges to overcome. Shall you be responsible to design the
      calorimeter for the high energy physics experiments of the future,
      or to calibrate and analyze the soon-to-come exciting new physics
      of the current generation of experiments, you will for sure profit
      from a 360 degrees overview on the art of calorimetry.
      In these lectures I will overview the calorimeters of the major
      modern high energy physics experiments, and I will touch briefly
      on calorimeters for astroparticle and neutrino physics.
      The state of the art technologies, the novelties in material,
      and readout electronics for caloriemters will be presented.
      I will discuss innovative analysis techniques and
      the currently best results obtained with modern calorimeters.

      Fast Front-End Electronics for Energy and Timing Measurements

      Deep submicron CMOS technologies offer the possibility of implementing multi-channel front-end ASICs for radiation detectors with sampling speed in excess of 10 Gsamples/sec, time resolution below 100 ps, energy resolution above 8 bits and power consumption in the order of milli-watts per channel. In this lecture the key issues involved in such complex designs will be discussed and the most recent developments in the field will be reviewed. Emphasis will be given to the design of the critical analog blocks and to the techniques that must be applied to make possible the co-existence on the same chip of sensitive front-end amplifiers with fast digital circuits. Two case studies will be discussed in detail: a timing circuit with 100 ps resolution for silicon detector and a front-end for photomultiplier tubes with rate capability in excess of 10 MHz per channel.

      Novel Silicon Detectors

      Pixel sensors are a key element in modern experimental applications, spanning from silicon vertex trackers in high energy physics experiments to high resolution imagers at advanced X-ray sources. The demanding specifications of these experiments stimulate the development of novel solutions, exploiting the most recent advances in sensor technologies, microelectronics, and interconnection techniques. These lectures will review the different paths that are being pursued for the next generation of pixel detector systems. Special focus will be given to monolithic sensor technologies and to 3D vertical integration, which open new perspectives for pixel applications requiring low material budget, high resolution, high data rate capabilities and the generation of a track trigger with low latency.

      Novel Silicon Detectors

      Pixel sensors are a key element in modern experimental applications, spanning from silicon vertex trackers in high energy physics experiments to high resolution imagers at advanced X-ray sources. The demanding specifications of these experiments stimulate the development of novel solutions, exploiting the most recent advances in sensor technologies, microelectronics, and interconnection techniques. These lectures will review the different paths that are being pursued for the next generation of pixel detector systems. Special focus will be given to monolithic sensor technologies and to 3D vertical integration, which open new perspectives for pixel applications requiring low material budget, high resolution, high data rate capabilities and the generation of a track trigger with low latency.

      Inorganic scintillators for the detection of ionizing radiation

      The lecture starts with an overview of the operation principle of inorganic scintillators. This part comprises; 1) the interaction phase where ionizing particles produce a large number of free charge carriers in the scintillation crystal. 2) The transport phase where charge carriers are transported to luminescence centers. 3) The luminescence phase leading to emission of the scintillation flash. Here the properties of important luminescence ions like the lanthanides Ce3+, Pr3+, Eu2+, and the s2-elements Tl+, Pb2+, Bi3+ will be discussed. In the next part, the physical and technological aspects that determine the scintillation light yield, scintillation speed, and how that all affects energy resolution and timing resolution of scintillation detection systems are addressed. What are the fundamental limits and have those been reached by modern day scintillators? The theory and models on scintillators will be illustrated by presenting and discussing the properties of well known and widely applied scintillators like e.g. NaI:Tl, CsI:Tl, Lu2SiO5:Ce, BaF2, PbWO4, LaCl3:Ce, LaBr3:Ce. The ideal scintillator does not exist. Some scintillators excel in energy resolution and others in detection efficiency or scintillation speed. One therefore should always find an optimal compromise between detector demands, available scintillators, and price. The final part of the lecture is on the application of scintillators and its requirements.




      Curriculum Vitae Prof. Pieter Dorenbos

      After his PhD on ionic conductivity in alkaline earth fluorides at the University of Groningen in The Netherlands, he started in 1988 as assistant professor at the Technical University of Delft to develop new scintillator materials for the detection of ionizing radiation. That research topic evolved into a wider field of luminescence materials research. In 2008 Pieter Dorenbos was appointed full professor in Luminescence Materials at the Technical University of Delft where he is now heading the Luminescence Materials Research program. He (co-) authored about 270 peer reviewed journal papers and is inventor of eight patented scintillators. Most important discovery relates to LaBr3:Ce3+, a scintillator that combines record low energy resolution with very fast scintillation response time. His main interests are; 1) scintillation mechanisms and related charge carrier migration and trapping phenomena in the solid state, and 2) the chemistry and physics associated with lanthanide impurity luminescence in inorganic compounds. Dorenbos has developed models that successfully predict the position of the ground and excited states of lanthanide ions in inorganic compounds. The expertise and laboratory infrastructure is directed towards developing new scintillators for radiation detection, new phosphors for lighting, display or solar conversion applications, new charge carrier storage materials for dosimetry and persistent luminescence, improving models for dating sediments, and studying phase switching processes in pure lanthanide compounds.
