Detector Research and Development in High Energy Physics


Tuesday, September 23, 2014


The detector R&D subprogram develops the next generation of instrumentation for HEP. It supports research leading to fundamental advances in the science of particle and radiation detection, and the development ofnew experimental techniques. This is typically long-term, "generic" R&D that is high-risk, but has the potential for wide applicability and/or high-impact. Topics studied in the detector R&D research area include, but are not limited to: low-mass, high channel density charged particle tracking detectors; high resolution, fast-readout calorimeters and particle identification detectors; techniques for improving the radiation tolerance of particle detectors; detectors for photons from ultraviolet to infrared wavelengths; detectors for cosmic microwave background radiation; detectors and experimental techniques for ultra-low-background experiments; and advanced electronics and data acquisition systems. In addition, this research area develops next-generation computational tools and techniques in support of experimental HEP research. Support for graduate and postdoctoral research training, engineering and other technical efforts, and equipment and computational efforts required for experimental detector R&D and fabrication is included in this research area.
