Activities of IEAP in the ATLAS experiment

  • Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics (IEAP) is the research institute of the Czech Technical University in Prague.

  • 26 physicists and 2 technicians from the IEAP are involved in the ATLAS experiment.

  • 13 physicists are registered as ATLAS authors.

MPX03 - Close to HEC electronics

  • Our fields of activities:

    • SCT FWD – construction, testing

    • ATLAS-MPX/TPX detector system

      • Radiation background measurement

      • Luminosity measurement

    • Data analyzing

      • From ATLAS-MPX/TPX

      • “Complex” ATLAS data – taul leptons, ttH (H→ττ)

    • Study of physics, possibly observable in the ATLAS experiment

      • Effects of KK gluons, top quark physics,…


What we can offer

What we can offer

  • Know-how of pixel and strip detectors

    • Development of read-out electronics

    • Tests of the electronics

    • Tests of detection properties

  • Clean rooms

    • Used for SCT tests during the ATLAS construction


What we can offer1

What we can offer

  • Manual wirebonding machine

  • Fast osciloscopes, all necessary equipments for digital as well as analog testing (coincidence/anticoincidence, ADCs, fast scintillators,…).

  • Sources of radiation for detector testing

    • X-ray;

    • Alpha, beta particles (source of electrons with controlled energy);

    • Radionuclide neutron sources (thermal as well as fast neutrons).


What we can offer2

What we can offer

  • Van de Graaff accelerator

    • p, d, α, 3He;

    • Monochromatic neutrons (~100 keV up to 17 MeV).


What we can offer3

What we can offer

  • Available access to harsh γ, n radiation fields (microtron), well defined beams of slow and fast neutrons (collaborating partners).

  • Reference sources for absolute detection efficiency calibration for x, γ, n.

  • Manpower for Inner detector upgrade

    • Assembling and other mechanical works, experiments, administrative works;

    • 8 employees + 1-2 new students, each ~20% FT capacity.

  • Experimental tests

    • Prepared by our employees, with our sources of ionizing particles and Van de Graaff accelerator.
