AIDA boosts detector development

Bringing institutes together to work on shared problems, the AIDA project is enabling detector solutions for the exacting conditions of upgraded and future accelerators.

Résumé

AIDA soutient le développement des détecteurs

Le projet AIDA (Advanced European Infrastructure for detectors at Accelerators), cofinancé par l’Union européenne, rassemble plus de 80 institutions de 23 pays européens, qui ont uni leurs forces pour encourager le développement des détecteurs destinés aux futurs accélérateurs de particules. Sont notamment visés l’amélioration prévue du LHC et le développement de nouveaux collisionneurs linéaires et de nouvelles installations pour la physique sur les neutrinos et la physique des saveurs. Deux ans après le lancement du projet, qui doit durer quatre ans, les résultats obtenus, allant d’outils logiciels à des équipements de télescope à faisceaux, en passant par la collaboration entre le milieu universitaire et l’industrie, illustrent bien les progrès réalisés.

Research in high-energy physics at particle accelerators requires highly complex detectors to observe the particles and study their behaviour. In the EU-supported project on Advanced European Infrastructure for Detectors at Accelerators (AIDA), more than 80 institutes from 23 European countries have joined forces to boost detector development for future particle accelerators in line with the European Strategy for Particle Physics. These include the planned upgrade of the LHC, as well as new linear colliders and facilities for neutrino and flavour physics. To fulfil its aims, AIDA is divided into three main activities: networking, joint research and transnational access, all of which are progressing well two years after the project’s launch (continue)
