The COVID-19 situation doesn’t allow us to conduct the program – especially the practical part of it – in a reasonable and enjoyable way. Therefore, the school will be shifted to next year, taking place in the second half of September 2021.
The School addressed master students and beginning Ph.D. students aiming to work with particle detectors based on photosensors. It introduced the concepts and technologies including light creation, propagation and detection as well as the associated electronics for signal processing and digitization.
About 30 master students, Ph.D. students, and postdoctoral researchers in physics aiming to work with data acquisition systems (DAQ) participated in the School. It introduced typical concepts and designs of DAQs and associated electronics enabling the handling of high data rates, preserving relevant signal information, or making smart trigger decisions.
