WP14: Infrastructure for advanced calorimeters


  • Extend the infrastructure in Europe for the development of calorimeter systems for the HL-LHC and for future colliders, capitalising on investments made in the EUDET and AIDA projects:
  • Develop facilities for the systematic examination of novel optical materials and for the large scale investigation of silicon photomultipliers coupled to plastic scintillators for highly granular calorimeters
  • Preparation of the construction of large scale calorimeters with silicon readout and validation of sensors in the context of LHC temperature and radiation hardness requirements
  • Implementation of standards to enable the common running of prototypes of highly granular calorimeters with other detector systems and development of highly compact data acquisition systems for full sized detectors
  • Enabling the study of the thermal behaviour of large scale calorimeter systems and validation of production techniques for massive absorber structures
