INtelligent, Fast, Interconnected and Efficient devices for Frontier Exploitation in Research and Industry
FOR ASTROPHYSICS, MEDICAL PHYSICS AND PARTICLE PHYSICS
The originality and innovative aspects of our project is by introducing advanced data reduction processing at the Front-End (on detector) Electronics (FEE) level, in all the applications considered by INFIERI. This is based on a real time understanding of the Physics or possible diagnoses and has been widely addressed and studied in the first part of the project by an intense activity on “feasibility studies”. It also requires a deep understanding and close handling on the development of the FEE associated to the instruments. This is the case in this project with a FE technology related mainly to the SiPM technology and new Si strips and pixel FEE ASIC developments. Members of the INFIERI network are taking an active part to the development of these two types of FEE devices. The SiPM technology is widely used in particle Physics and more and more in Medical Physics as well as Astrophysics. Pixel technology is widely used in Particle Physics but also in Medical Imaging application such as Medipix.
