About general HEP detector infrastructure. Nikhef will receive 140k and will match up to 200k.
Nikhef works on 2 work packages:
1) CO2 Cooling
2) Continuation of EUDET activities, including readout.

Description of participant:
FOM: Nikhef has years of experience in design and development of particle detectors. For the current LHC experiments Nikhef has built both gaseous and silicon subdetectors. In addition it has the responsibility for the cooling of one of these detectors. The further development of CO2 based cooling systems is and important goal in current R&D work at the Nikhef institute. In addition Nikhef is one of the main players in the development of integrated grids for gaseous pixel detectors and the development of front end electronics for pixel readout.

Tasks in AIDA:
Short CV for the key persons:

  1. Dr A.P. Colijn is a staff physicist working on the ATLAS experiment. Currently he is project leader for all CO2 developments at Nikhef.
  2. Prof. Dr. ir. E.N. Koffeman is a staff physicist in ATLAS who is project leader for future pixel detector mechanics. Also national contact for AIDA
Task 9.3: Precision Pixel Detectors
  1. Creation of a versatile beam telescope able to characterize detector prototypes, satisfying the demanding requirements in terms of cooling infrastructure, read-out speed and precision
  2. Creation of an off-beam infrastructure for the evaluation of thermo-mechanical properties of Vertex Detector prototypes
Task 9.3: Precision Pixel Detector Infrastructure
Silicon pixel detectors for application in the innermost detection layers in future collider experiments form an extremely active field. Within the life-time of AIDA several vertex detectors are to be installed (ATLAS IBL, Belle-II vertex detector), while R&D into new technologies (i.e. WP3) yields devices with extremely high precision and transparency. Task 9.3 bundles the effort of Europe's key institutes, involved in the major high energy physics projects, to provide a common infrastructure for the evaluation of the performance of prototypes.
Subtask 9.3.1: This task will build on the telescope infrastructure developed as part of the EUDET. This infrastructure has proven its unprecedented performance. Even more importantly, this infrastructure has an excellent track record in terms of number and variety of users, which corroborate the success of this approach. In this task the existing telescope services will be improved and extended to cater to the needs of an even larger user community:
  1. A versatile and modular pixel telescope will be built using state-of-the-art pixel devices (TimePix, ATLAS FE-I4 and MIMOSA) to meet the requirements of a broad user community. The telescope must provide a precise set of reference measurements and must be capable ofLHC-speed response and time-stamping [CEA; CERN; CNRS (IPHC); CSIC (IFCA, IFAE, IFIC); DESY; UNIGLA; UNILIV; UNIVBRIS].
  2. A sophisticated circulating CO2 cooling plant and a container for devices under test with a controlled temperature and humidity to provide the necessary cooling to (irradiated) prototypes [CERN; DESY; FOM; UOXF].
  3. Resources are reserved for the development and maintenance of common analysis software. A common DAQ to read out the different detector technologies in a single DAQ will be developed in close collaboration with task 8.6 [DESY; UNIGE].
