The SENSE Detector School

Photosensor developers seem to like Bavarian castles. Whether it is the international Light Workshop series that is happening at Ringberg Castle near Lake Tegernsee or the ASPERA and APPEC Technology Forums that in the past were organized at Nymphenburg Castle in Munich - this year in June Ringberg Castle again was hosting a group of 32 PhD and master students for the SENSE Detector School. As part of the SENSE program this school was newly designed to train young researchers on photosensors and their application in science projects and in innovative commercial products.

Single Photon Detection Workshop

announcementOn July 10th a Single Photon Detection Workshop at ALBA, the Spanish synchrotron source, took place as a side meeting to the last SENSE workshop hosted by ALBA. Aim of the workshop was to identify the key detector technologies available in the Barcelona area, understand the detection needs of this community, understand their scientific background, and connect this community with the SENSE community providing ultimately new opportunities for research by developing enabling detector technology.

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).
