Researchers at the Valparaíso Technological Science Center held the first Electronics Workshop for Particle Detectors

In a day specially designed for undergraduate students in the area of electronic engineering, a group of researchers from the CCTVal basal center of the UTFSM, carried out the first workshop focused on the development of electronics for the manufacture of particle detectors.

 

The workshop, which took the name of I Workshop on Electronics for Detectors, was an activity born of the need to link the electronics students of the Federico Santa María Technical University and the Pontificia Universidad Católica, because both have groups of students with skills that can be complemented for the manufacture of detectors. The emphasis in this specialty comes from the collaboration that the two universities maintain with the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) in their ATLAS experiment.

The activity that took place in Valparaíso, began with a round of talks open to students, led by USM Researcher and Nuclear Physics expert, Dr. Sergey Kuleshov, with a presentation on Electronics for High Energy Physics; followed by the academic from the Pontificia Universidad Católica, Dr. Angel Abusleme, who spoke on Microelectronics for particle physics experiments; Finally, the postdoctoral researcher USM, Dr. Pablo Ulloa, presented the advances achieved in the Hodoscope project for High Energy Physics.

During the afternoon, the group had the opportunity to learn about the work that the CCTVal technical staff performs in the production of sTGC for the ATLAS collaboration and, in turn, they were able to see the process of designing and manufacturing detectors for experiments in collaborations, in this sense, the academic and researcher of the Center, César Silva, emphasizes that "the copetences of each group are very complementary, with a high level of specialization each. Therefore, there are many opportunities for collaboration. That's why it makes a lot of sense for us to belong to the center, but there is still a lot of space to increase and deepen collaboration. Even more, being both universities partners in Engineering 2030 and given the nature of our work is very aligned with several of the pillars of this project. "

Likewise, the academicand of PUC and also researcher of the center, Angel Abuslene, emphasizes the importance of strengthening ties between both universities and points out that the idea arose from "a visit of Cesar (Silva) to the catholic university, where he learned the things that We are doing and it seemed interesting and we realized, when talking, that we have a lot of opportunities to collaborate because both groups do different but complementary things".

A second version of the event aims to take place during the year 2019, bringing together a greater number of attendees, who can expand their knowledge on the subject, establish partnerships and deepen the learning of new technologies.
