SENSE logo web w180 jpg no transparent
We are happy to announce our final meeting on July 9th at the ALBA synchrotron in Barcelona, Spain. This workshop is planned as an open meeting to present the final SENSE Roadmap and the recommended strategy towards developing the ultimate low light-level photosensors. Some other elements of SENSE will be also introduced and discussed how they can sustain after SENSE.

A working dinner with discussion will be held the previous night, July 8th (with registration).

A visit to the ALBA synchrotron is possible directly after the meeting on July 9th (with registration).

SENSE at the 16th Baksan School “Particles and Cosmology”

baksanThe Baksan School “Particles and Cosmology” is a well-respected international scientific school with a long tradition. On April 10-18, 2019 for the 16th time 58 postgraduates, diploma students, and young scientists met in Terskol (North Caucasus) near the Baksan Neutrino Observatory (BNO). BNO is the world's first deep underground laboratory, which was celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017 and can undoubtedly be called the birthplace of astroparticle physics. The Baksan School was jointly organized by the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Science and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research with the participation of the Astroparticle Physics European Consortium and the Russian Foundation for basic Research.

A Mini-Telescope for Cosmic Rays

fig1 smallsciences unige logo.gifThe mini-telescope was developed for outreach purposes and to investigate the behavior of a readout ASIC coupled to large SiPM sensors. The outreach scope is to increase
the interest in gamma-ray astronomy, cosmic rays, as well as detector physics. This project is the result of a collaboration between the Multi-Messenger High-Energy Astrophysics group of the Particle Physics Department (DPNC) and the Department of Astronomy at the University of Geneva.

SENSE Detector School

Flyer School Druck.pdfWe are happy to announce the SENSE Detector School at the Ringberg Castle in Kreuth am Tegernsee in Bavaria, Germany, from 19 - 22 June 2019. The 2.5 days mini-school for PhD and master students aims to inform about the forefront developments on low light-level detectors.
The speciality of the school is the small group of students with a continuous possibility to discuss with the teachers

The participation of 25 students is sponsored by SENSE. You can apply for the school until 3 May 2019 with a letter of motivation. The nomination of participants will be announced on 10 May 2019. We aim to achieve a balanced mix of working topics as well as gender and nationalities.If required, childcare can also be organised.

As soon as the timetable has been finalised, a decision will be made on a possible contribution from the students.
