ALBA, 10 July 2019: Single Photon Detection Workshop at ALBA Synchrotron

On Wednesday, 10 July 2019, ALBA Synchrotron hosts a workshop on "Single photon detection" constituting a Satellite Workshop to the Expert Group meeting of the SENSE initiative. Lourdes Fábrega will give the talk "Transition Edge Sensors: versatile and sensitive radiation detectors" about the sensors they are preparing to go to space.

Detectors capable of detecting a single photon are an enabling technology for many scientific and engineering disciplines. By increasing detection efficiency, time resolution, energy resolution and spatial resolution, new instrumentation can be developed or existing systems improved providing unprecedented sensitivity ultimately allowing to address problems on the forefront of science and technology. The SENSE effort (https://www.sense-pro.org/index.php/about) was create to identify a roadmap for such ideal low light level sensor development and is funded by the European Commission under Future and Emerging Technologies Open Coordination and Support Action.

The final and closed Experts Group meeting of the SENSE initiative, an advisory board to the SENSE project, will take place at the Spanish Synchrotron light source Alba in Barcelona on July 9th.  Using this opportunity, Alba would like to organize a satellite workshop on July 10th allowing a broader Spanish and Catalan community to interact with the members of the Expert group. Goal of this meeting is to connect developers and technology providers of the region with the Expert group members. The meeting will cover a wide spectral range (from IR to gamma-rays) and is focused on the following sensor and detection technologies:

  • Vacuum detectors like photo multiplier tubes (PMT) and multichannel plate detectors (MCP)
  • Silicon- photomultipliers (SiPM)
  • Other low-level light sensors like
    • Superconducting transition edge sensors (TES)
    • Neganov-Luke light devices
    • Organic sensors
    • Abalone concepts

In addition, all necessary auxiliary technology, like Application Specific Integrated Circuitry (ASIC) development, acquisition electronic development, and data management will be included in the discussion.The meeting will provide an overview of the SENSE project, selected talks about technology developments and applications, and a round table discussion focused on possible collaborations in the different spectral ranges. A detailed program will be available in the mid of June.
