Work Packages

1.1

Hybrid pixel sensors with advanced features to be combined with high performance readout ASICs. These developments target small pixels, high-resolution timing and high-rate applications and comprise...

1.2

Development of monolithic CMOS sensors for the innermost radii for maximum performance, and for the outer-layers as cost effective pixel trackers with high granularity and low material budget...

1.3

Within the EP R&D the module work package (WP 1.3) focusses on the study and development of new module concepts for hybrid and CMOS pixel detectors and their integration for future applications...

1.4

Detector simulations and modelling of radiation damage, as well as the development of dedicated characterization setups and flexible data-acquisition systems for testing purposes. Mailing List...

2

Gas based detectors will remain a key technology for radiation detection in particle physics experiments. They provide excellent performances for large area, low mass, radiation hard, relatively cheap...

3

Calorimetry and light-based detectors have been combined in a work package, as there are several potential synergies. Three topics for calorimetry and one topic each for Ring Imaging Cherenkov (RICH)...

4

Detector mechanics and infrastructure such as detector cooling systems have often a crucial impact on detector design, operation and ultimately also on physics performance. Mechanics usually has to...

5

ASICs for HEP should follow the microelectronics industry in order to benefit from the intrinsic density of more downscaled transistors and also the intrinsic high speed and lower power consumption...

6

Radiation-hard high speed data links play an ever growing role in modern experiments. The state-ofthe-art marked by the lp-GBT under development for the LHC Phase-II upgrades, provides data rates of...

7

Software forms a critical part of the HEP programme, recognised in the European Strategy Update of 2020. From the generation and simulation of physics events, to the data acquisition systems and...

8

Detector magnets and magnet systems are key components of future experiments. In order to cope with in some cases tremendously increased requirements, challenges in different domains need to be...

About us

CERN EP Department has defined a strategic R&D programme to address the primary technological challenges of future experiments. Started up in January 2020, the programme is structured in 11 work packages focusing on tracking, calorimetry and particle ID, as well as on equally demanding challenges in the domains of electronics, mechanics, cooling, magnets and software.

A large part of the R&D work is carried out jointly with external groups from universities and research labs, and in close cooperation with industrial partners. We profit from cooperation with dynamic and efficient structures like the RD50 and RD51 collaborations, and networking on the European level (e.g. AIDA, Cremlin+).

This R&D programme is in the tradition of previous similar initiatives - the DRDC projects in the 1990s and the White Paper R&D programme (2008-2011).
