Master Student projects

  • Could one identify very high energy (~ TeV) particles in Silicon voxel detectors? More details
  • Dark matter detector R&D details
  • CT Imaging: details
  • In this project we would like to test a single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) array for applications in charged particle detectors. First we would like to test the SPAD at Nikhef with Fe-55 and/or Sr-90 radioactive sources. For our applications it is of interest to reduce the dark count rate (DCR), therefore lowering the bias voltage and measuring the detection efficiency. In a second phase we would like to test two SPAD arrays in a beam-telescope set-up at CERN in order to determine more accurately the efficiency as function of bias voltage and to study the performance of the SPAD in a particle beam environment. This project will probably be in collaboration with TU-Delft.
