This series of online courses is intended to support UK PhD student training in instrumentation, along with continued development of postdocs and beyond. At present, it is geared towards the needs of the silicon/semiconductor community, and arose from the PPTAP discussions which took place during 2021.
The courses focus on the background knowledge involved in silicon detector development, from solid-state theory to electronics and hands-on software tutorials. Lectures will be grouped into:
Each lecture course consists of 8 one-hour lectures each, with lectures grouped into two 4-hour slots each week.
Lectures will be run on
in the weeks April 25 - June 20 inclusive.
Registration is open to everyone, and attendance is not monitored or enforced. Attending a subset of courses is entirely acceptable. The courses are run as a community effort on a voluntary basis by the lecturers, but feedback on the layout and topics will be welcome with the aim of future improvements.
