        Tracking particles in space and time: the 4D tracking revolution

        Abstract: In the past few years, two design innovations have radically changed the performance of silicon detectors and turned silicon sensors into high-resolution timing detectors, fit to meet the very demanding requirement of future 4D trackers. In this presentation,I will review the performance improvements that these two design innovations, low-gain (LGAD) and resistive read-out (RSD) [1], have brought to silicon sensors. Due to the LGAD mechanism, large signals lead to improved temporal precision, while charge sharing, due to the RSD design, has removed the need for very small pixels to achieve excellent spatial precision. LGAD- and RSD- based silicon sensors are now adopted, or considered, in several future experiments and are the basis for almost every next 4D-trackers. In the final part of the presentation, I will show how the introduction of multiple sampling front-end electronics and reconstruction methods based on machine learning can further improve the performances of future 4D trackers.

        Lecturer: Dot. Cartiglia is an experimental high-energy physicist. His field of research is detector design, construction, and commissioning.

        Precision Timing Detectors

        Abstract: Timing detectors are an indispensable tool in collider experiments. The advent of new precision timing detectors will enhance resolution to a few tens of picoseconds. Beyond aiding precise physics measurements and new physics searches, these detectors will play a pivotal role in addressing the reconstruction challenges posed by future high-luminosity detectors. In this lecture, we will delve into the requirements for these detectors. We will examine the obstacles we've overcome and the advancements we've achieved in electronics. Finally, we will discuss the synchronization of these detectors when they are implemented on a large scale, as in the Phase II CMS and ATLAS experiments.

        Lecturer: Ozgur Sahin is a tenured scientist at CEA Paris Saclay. He received his PhD from DESY and Hamburg University. He has been actively engaged in the LHC experiments since 2010 and is currently leading the development of the DAQ system of the new MIP (Minimum Ionizing Particle) timing detector (MTD) for the Phase II (i.e. the High Luminosity Phase of the LHC) CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) experiment. In addition to precision timing detectors, his research interests also extend to the applications of modern machine learning algorithms in data filtering and the field of Higgs Physics (Text informed by Lecturer).

        Mega-scale neutrino detectors: science and technological challenges

        Abstract: The lecture will introduce the technology and the science of the mega-scale neutrino experiments Hyper-Kamiokande and DUNE that are currently being built in Japan and the US. While the neutrino was discovered experimentally over 60 years ago, it has not given up all its secrets just yet. Oscillations between its flavour states are now well established and have been studied in detail in many experiments. An interesting hint from current experiments implies that neutrinos and antineutrinos may not oscillate in the same way, leading to possibly a strong CP violation effect in the neutrino sector. Such an observation would be extremely relevant for models attempting to explain the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe. The next-generation neutrino experiments will address these and many other questions about the nature of the neutrino.

        Lecturer: Professor and Head of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester, United Kingdom.

        Physics probed by precise neutrino oscillation measurements at Hyper-Kamiokande

        Abstract: Neutrino oscillation discovered in 1998 through the observation of atmospheric neutrinos by the Super-Kamiokande experiment implies that neutrinos have non-zero masses, which was the first evidence of physics beyond the standard model of elementary particles where neutrinos are massless. Since then, thanks to many neutrino experiments based on solar, atmospheric, accelerator and reactor neutrinos, already completed or still ongoing, our knowledge on neutrino properties, in particular, their masses and mixing, has been significantly improved. We are now in the precision era of neutrino physics. In this presentation, after the short introduction, firstly I will describe briefly the current status or what we have learned so far, focusing mainly on neutrino mass and mixing parameters relevant for oscillation phenomenon including CP phase. Secondly I will address what are the open questions in neutrino physics yet to be
        answered. Then I will discuss, from phenomenological point of view, what improvement on our knowledge for neutrinos can be achieved by Hyper-Kamiokande (HK) project mainly considering its long-baseline neutrino oscillation program, one of the most important
        objectives of HK. I also would like to discuss briefly possible synergy/complementarity between HK and other experiments such as JUNO and DUNE.

        Detectors for Future High Energy Muon and Hadron Colliders: Main technological challeges, some proposed solutions and R&D

        Abstract: The lecture will review the Physics and environmental challenges to be confronted by experiments to successfully run at a high energy Muon (3 to 10 TeV) or a high energy Hadron proton-proton collider (100 or more TeV). This means new generation of tracking detectors (both microvertex, near the colliding region and outer detectors i.e. at large radius from the beam pipes), the calorimeters able to measure with high precision the energy deposits of the particles and to carry on the tracking of the particles (high granularity calorimetry), as well as the sophisticated triggering systems to select the events from a huge background and the data readout chain and data processing able to handle extremely large amount of data, all this in a rather "hostile" environment. The upgrades already underway for the High Luminosity LHC are pioneering advances in detectors technology as well as in the associated DSM electronics to build the "intelligent" front-end and in the data communication and big data to process the huge amount of data and extract the Physics results. This first stage in the upgrades of the LHC experiments (ALICE, ATLAS, CMS and LHCb) will be probably followed by a second stage upgrade towards 2035; this will be another step forward in the preparation of the experiments for these next generation accelerators.

        To be noted: Hands-on Lab on detectors or related signal anddata processing R&D aspects for these future experiments are prepared for this school and will deepen the knowledge of the school attendants on the experimental challenges to be confronted in such accelerators environements (see INFIERI2023-Labs Booklett)

      KEYNOTE4: High Energy Muon and Hadron Collider Projects within the overall future accelerator panorama

      CHAIRED by: Dr.Nadia Pastrone (INFN-Torino, IT)

      Abstract: Beyond the successful completion of the high-luminosity LHC, the ESPPU (European Strategy for Particle Physics Update) identified an e+e– Higgs factory as the highest priority future collider, and tasked CERN to undertake a feasibility study for a hadron collider operating at the highest possible energies, with a Higgs factory as a possible first stage (FCC). China is developing a similar startegy with the CepC followed by the SppC high energy hadron collider. Linear collider Higgs factory options as ILC and CLIC are studied in parallel. An international muon collider collaboration addresses the challenges of constructing a future 3-10 TeV muon collider.
      Although accelerator R&D is necessarily a long-term endeavour, the European LDG (Lab Directors Group) roadmap focuses on the shorter but crucial timescale of the next five-to-ten years. It concentrates on the five key objectives identified in the ESPPU: further development of high-field superconducting magnets; advanced technologies for superconducting and normal-conducting radio-frequency (RF) structures; development and exploitation of laser/plasma-acceleration techniques; studies and developments towards future bright muon beams and muon colliders; and the advancement and exploitation of energy-recovery linear accelerator technology.
      This keynote will first describe the overall panorama of the future accelerators starting with the e+e- Higgs factory options. The speaker will then expand on two main accelerators options that are also actively studied as part of the abovementioned accelerator roadmap: a high energy muon collider (3 to 10 TeV) and a high energy hadron collider at 100 TeV. A high energy Muon collider R&D is studied both in Europe and USA; a high energy hadron collider is studied both at CERN (FCC-hh) and in China (SppC). Both accelerator options are linked to the development of high field magnets; this is the subject of another keynote in this school. Besides, the introductory theoretical presentation by Carlos Wagner stresses the physics potential with these colliders, and the lecture by Nadia Pastrone will discuss the experimental set-ups needed to confront the new challenges imposed on the detectors of these colliders.

      Lecturer: : Steinar Stapnes is a Professor at the Department of Physics of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Oslo (Norway). He is currently Linear Collider Study Leader and Research Scientist at CERN. He was deeply involved in the construction of the ATLAS experiment at CERN, where he acted as Co-Deputy Spokeperson. The last decade he has been involved on the development of future accelerators, primarily the CLIC high energy e+e- linear accelerator project and ILC. He is leader of the International Muon Collider Collaboration Steering Group and member of the International Advisory Committee for the CepC project in China (text informed by the lecturer).

      KEYNOTE5: Future in Neutrino Physics

      Chaired by Prof. Stefan Soldner-Rembold (Manchaster U, Head of the Physics Department)

      Abstract: In this lecture we look forward, beyond the next generation giant neutrino experiments presently under contraction, T2HK and DUNE, and will explore the landscape of experiments and facilities that are in preparation or being considered for precision oscillation studies and could become 'next-to next' generation experiments, depending on the open questions in neutrino physics that will emerge at the time. We will also e.g. look forward to planned experiments for measuring properties of neutrinos such as mass measurements or the Majorana/Dirac nature of this fundamental particle.
      Next, we report on opportunities offered by colliders as neutrino factories, the first
      pathfinder experiments of which that have produced first results in 2023 at the LHC namely the FASER and SND@LHC experiments. A proposal for a dedicated TeV neutrino detector facility at CERN for the High-luminosity LHC to take data in 2030 is being prepared.
      These activities will be very inspiring for the long-term plans of future high energy colliders
      at CERN or elsewhere.
      Finally a very important part of the present and future neutrino program will be the study of neutrinos from the sky with large detectors in the ice or water, such as IceCube and KM3NET.
      Lecturer: Prof. Dr. Albert De Roeck is a senior research scientist and staff member of the largest particle physics laboratory in the world, CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

He obtained his PhD at the university of Antwerp on an experiment at CERN, studying the multi-particle dynamics in hadron-hadron interactions. De Roeck spent then 10 years at DESY (Germany) where he and his team made very precise measurements of the quark and gluon structure of the proton, and precise tests of the strong force. At the end of the 90's his interest turned to the possibility to discover new physics at future particle colliders, in particular Supersymmetry and Extra Dimensions, and returned to CERN. He first joined an experiment at the large electron-positron collider LEP, studying the strong force and searching for signals of new physics. He played a significant role in the preparation of one of the experiments at the LHC: the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) (2000-2009). De Roeck has become one the leaders in the CMS/LHC physics program, actively involved in physics analyses. He was deputy spokesperson at CMS (2010-2011), and convener of the Higgs search physics group (2012-2013) with a leading role in the Higgs discovery (July 2012).
      At the LHC he is a leader of the long-lived particle search effort and involved in several new experiments such as SND@LHC and FPF (Forward Physics Facility). He leads the neutrino physics group at CERN (since 2017) and is an active member in the DUNE and ICARUS experiments in the US and the T2K experiment in Japan (text informed by the Lecturer).

        Abstract: The High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) are both global scientific experiments that will produce Exabytes of data on a similar timescale and will require significant global resources to process and analyse their data. The CERN, SKAO, GÉANT and PRACE consortium was formed to address this burning need for computing resources and lay the foundation for High Performance Computing (HPC) adoption for fundamental research. Challenges ranging across authentication, authorisation, data transfer and access, and benchmarking and accounting are applicable to all big data fields on the path to Exascale computing. In this talk I will discuss developments to support the CERN use case in these cross-cutting areas of HPC integration, and their impact to future sciences.

        Extreme scale dataflows in the compute continuum for the next generation of giant astronomical observatories

        Abstract: The next generation of multi-science hubs such as the SKA are based on a highly challenging operating principle: they generate extreme scale data volumes to be processed and reduced in a guaranteed maximum time, while remaining as energy efficient as possible and operable for decades. To build these infrastructures, the complete digital continuum has to be realized, through a hierarchy of cyber-infrastructures, fed continuously by science sensors at the edge ; filtering, combining, processing and reducing continuous data streams in quasi real-time locally on supercomputers; and generating science grade data products to be delivered worldwide to a distributed community of scientists, relying on cloud infrastructures for high-level analysis. The challenges faced by international scientific communities in looking towards the implementation and exploitation of such experiments are driven by i) a paradigm shift to a dataflow model in which data streams have to be reduced in real-time before being discarded, ii) managing a new scale of data volumes, up to the multi-Exabyte as well as iii) fitting development, operations, maintenance and upgrades within a restricted cost and power envelope. In this talk, I will cover more quantitatively these challenges and will present the large scale R&D initiatives initiated at national and European levels to address them, federated under joint public-private laboratory: ECLAT.

        Introduction to Integrated Photonics and Silicon Photonics

        Photonics is defined as the field of science and engineering that involves the precise manipulation of light, and particularly at a microscopic level (i.e. the scale of the wavelength of light). One of the key technologies that enable this field is the use of Photonic Integrated Circuits, i.e. chips which make it possible to generate, guide, distribute, diffract, filter, modulate and detect light. By using chip technology, integrated photonics enjoys the same benefits of integrated electronics: smaller form factor, lower energy consumption, better stability, en potentially lower cost and large-volume manufacturing.
        In this lecture, we will cover the basics of photonic integrated circuits, the basic operational principles, the various functions we want to perform and the different technological implementations. We will also explore the different applications for photonic chips.
        We will then dive deeper into one particular technology platform for photonic circuits: silicon photonics. Silicon photonics builds on the materials and manufacturing infrastructure for CMOS electronics, and even though silicon is not the most ideal material for most optical functions, it has become a key driver for the use of photonic circuit, especially powering the growing communication networks in datacenters.

        Lecturer: Wim Bogaerts is a professor in the Photonics Research Group at Ghent University and the IMEC nanotechnology research center in Belgium. He completed his PhD in 2004, pioneering the use of industrial CMOS fabrication tools to build photonic circuits. Between 2000 and 2010, he was the driver behind the buildup of IMEC’s silicon photonics technology. In parallel, he started developing design automation tools to implement complex silicon photonic circuits. In 2014, he co-founded Luceda Photonics, bringing the design tool IPKISS to the market. Since 2016 he is back full-time at Ghent University and IMEC on research grant of the European Research Council, focuses on the challenges for large-scale photonic circuits and the new field of programmable photonics. He is an IEEE Fellow, and senior member of OSA and SPIE (Text informed by the Lecturer).

        Harnessing optical non-linearities with integrated photonic structures

        Abstract: The confinement of light in optical microguides and cavities enables us to achieve exotic regimes of nonlinear optics, even with low power levels. Specifically, by recirculating light in optical microcavities, the intensity of the stored field can be increased by thousands of times compared to the incident field, resulting in amplified interaction between light and matter. In this lecture, I will introduce fundamental concepts on this subject and review our recent progress in this area, with a focus on new findings, such as the investigation of nonlinear dynamics of vibrational modes and the generation of novel optical and mechanical frequencies. Additionally, I will discuss their implications in second-generation quantum technologies.

        Lecturer: Gustavo Wiederhecker holds an Associate Professor position at the University of Campinas, his research laboratory targets at harnessing nonlinear optical phenomena within microphotonic devices, with emphasis in the interaction between light and mechanical waves. He has been elected an affiliate member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences for the 2019-2024 term. Before joining University of Campinas in 2011, he earned his B.Sc and Ph.D degrees in Physics from the same University and has been a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University from 2008-2011. His Ph.D thesis has been awarded with the "Grande Prêmio CAPES José Leite Lopes" on 2009. (Text informed by the Lecturer).

        Wireless Communication

        Abstract: Wireless data and power transmission is a necessity and a challenge in the High Energy Physics (HEP) community: a necessity because it will end up with the cabling and will accelerate the triggering process, a challenge because it requires high rate data transmission, especially in the tracker detector region (close to the interaction point between the two beams of particles) of the present and future detectors. Millimetre waves for wireless communication seem a good candidate as it allows large bandwidth however, it imposes some constraints.
        The WADAPT (Wireless Allowing Data and Power Transfer) collaboration started a R&D program with different laboratories around the world. The main results of this collaboration will be presented as well as the present and future studies.

        Lecturer: Dr Yan Benhammou is a researcher at the Tel Aviv University. He mainly worked in CMS and ATLAS, the two largest experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN on the detector development and spent time at CERN leading some ATLAS detector upgrade. In parallel, he worked on silicon and GaAs detectors and developed ultra thin sensors for forward calorimetry in future accelerators. These detectors will be used in the future LUXE (LUXE stands for Laser and XFEL experiment at DESY, using the XFEL, a 3.4 kms long X-Ray laser beam, to study Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) in the strong-field regime where QED becomes non-perturbative).

        The Edge of Tomorrow: Real-time Artificial Intelligence for Science

        Abstract: Pursuing answers to fundamental questions about our nature requires searches for the ultra-rare, very subtle, and the inspection of nature at extremely fine spatial and temporal scales. Cutting-edge experiments are often confronted with massive amounts of very rich data on which Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques provide powerful insights. To accelerate scientific discovery, enabling powerful AI algorithms across the data processing continuum, as close to sensor front-ends as possible, is becoming increasingly valuable. To deploy AI in these challenging scientific environments, we require robust and efficient learning and usable and accessible tool flows for optimized training and implementation across a broad range of scientific domains. This talk will introduce the motivations and requirements for real-time AI applications for physics and connections to broader science and industry applications, the development of modern techniques for deploying them into our experiments, and open research questions and challenges.

      CHAIRED by Prof. Yoshinobu Unno (KEK, Japan)

      Two of the most challenging questions facing astrophysics and fundamental Physics are the natures of dark energy, the cause of the accelerated expansion of the Universe, and of dark matter, the dominant but unknown form of matter in the cosmos. The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Euclid mission is a satellite dedicated to answering these questions.

      Euclid was launched on July 1st, 2023 from Cape Canaveral on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. From its observing station at the Sun-Earth Lagrange point 2 (L2), 1.5 million kilometers from Earth, it will survey the visible extragalactic sky over six years with a 1.2-meter telescope feeding two instruments: a broad-band visible imager (VIS, covering wavelengths 550-900 nm) and a near-infrared spectrometer and photometer (NISP, covering wavelengths 900-2000 nm) equipped with three imaging filters (YJH bands) and a slitless spectrograph (grism). This will give us images at an angular resolution approaching that of the Hubble Space Telescope, but covering 1/3 of the sky, as well as deep near infrared images and spectra - a rich astronomical survey promising important advances and discoveries.

      Coupled with visible imaging data from several ground-based telescopes, Euclid will use observations of gravitational lensing - the distortion of distant galaxy images by foreground gravitational fields bending light rays - and of galaxy positions to accurately measure the large-scale distribution of matter (large-scale cosmic structure) and its evolution with time. This will tell us about the evolution, if any, of dark energy and about the nature of dark matter as it creates the large-scale structure of the Universe.

      Led by ESA, with contributions from NASA, Euclid is a large international effort already spanning more than a decade.. The Euclid Consortium (EC) is responsible for delivering the two instruments and for the scientific exploitation of the mission. The EC regroups more than 2000 members in more than 15 countries across Europe, Canada, Japan, and the United States.

      I will give an overview of the Euclid mission from inception to the present, including its scientific objectives, technical and operations design, and an update on current status and future milestones.

      Prof. James G. Bartlett is Distinguished Professor of Physics at the Astroparticule et Cosmologie (APC) Laboratory of the Université Paris Cité.

        Quantum Thermodynamics

        Abstract: Thermodynamics sets bounds for different technologies including quantum technologies. In the latter case, out-of-equilibrium dynamics, energy fluctuations and randomness are fundamentally present. On the other hand, modern techniques for manipulation of quantum systems allow experimental access to microscopic states, making explicit the role of information theory in different protocols, which also introduce new perspectives for technological applications. Quantum features such as coherence and non-classical correlations can be employed to obtain advantages or to perform processes that would be impossible in the classical context. In this lecture, we will explore some experiments that harness such quantum advantages such as work extraction and heat transport. We will also discuss some generalizations of the second law in these contexts and possibilities to transcend the classical limits.

        Abstract: Cold atoms represent an ideal platform for the implementation of second-generation quantum technologies. Particularly interesting opportunities emerge from a coherent coupling of the atoms to single-mode light fields enabled by resonant optical cavities. In this lecture, after a general introduction into the world of cold atoms, I will present two of our research lines. In the first one, we study the interaction of ultracold atoms with a ring cavity in parameter regimes suitable for the creation of non-classical collective states of the atomic cloud with possible application in Heisenberg-limited interferometry. The regime may also allow for a global synchronization of the atomic dipoles with application in superradiant lasing. In a second research line, we are setting up a high sensitivity matter-wave interferometer for inertial sensing and gravimetry. It is based on observing in real time Bloch oscillations performed by atoms located inside a periodic optical lattice formed by two counter-propagating modes of the a cavity and exploits the fact that the periodicity of the oscillations is strictly proportional to external forces.

        Lecturer: Philippe Courteille is Professor at the São Carlos Physics Institute of the University of São Paulo with a background in atomic interferometry and Bose-Einstein condensation. Currently, he coordinates an experimental research group studying collective effects in the interaction of ultracold atoms with light. He is interested in the question, how collective coupling between atoms may be harnessed for applications in second-generation quantum sensing of time and gravity.(Text informed by the Lecturer)

      The program of the two "QUANTIC DAYS" has been defined in collaboration with Prof. Paulo Nussenzveig.
      Since the first quantum revolution in the early twentieth century, a whole range of applications in the field of scientific research but also in our daily life has emerged; laser, electronics, satellite-based positioning, medical imagery, etc., Most of what has been discussed so far in this school is indeed "quantic".

      The second quantum revolution is now underway, this is well recognized everywhere in the world and considered as a key objective in many fieds of Research and Industry and including for the daily life applications. These two Quantic Days review some of the ongoing developments. As for most of the lectures given at the school, there will be a series of hands-on Lab related to the lectures presented in those 2 days for deepening some topics here addressed.

        • a) Quantum computing – a new paradigm in computing

          I will begin by providing a motivation for developing a new computing technology. I will then introduce quantum computing and key underlying concepts and show how they can be used to construct quantum gates and quantum algorithms. I will summarise the promise of quantum computing and what will be required to unlock this. I will then introduce the vibrant commercial ecosystem that is growing around this key technology.

          Dr Sebastian Weidt is the Co-Founder and CEO of Universal Quantum - a UK company 50+ exceptional engineers, scientists and operational staff operating in the UK, US and Germany developing the world’s first million qubit quantum computer. to a The German government has recently become the latest backer of Universal Quantum’s technology by awarding one of the world’s largest government quantum computing contracts ever given to a single company to Universal Quantum. Sebastian is also an Associate Professor in Quantum Technologies at the University of Sussex in the UK. His previous academic work around quantum computing for example led to the development of a drastically simplified approach to quantum computing and also includes the development of the world’s first blueprint for constructing a large-scale trapped-ion quantum computer.

        • b) How to construct a large scale trapped ion quantum computer

          I will provide an introduction into trapped ion technology and how this can be used to develop quantum computers. Scaling up current quantum computers is a major challenge. I will present an overview of a promising approach to scaling up a trapped ion quantum computer that can unlock the many applications of quantum computing.

        • a) Quantum Communication and Cryptography

          Abstract: Quantum communication studies the encoding and decoding of quantum information in photons and their transmission over a distance. In this talk, the main applications of quantum communication will be presented, especially Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), which exploits the laws of quantum physics for generation of a secret key between two parties. The evolution of QKD protocols over time and the main practical challenges will also be discussed.

          Lecturer: Guilherme P. Temporão got his PhD degree from Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio) and started working on quantum communications in 2004, in the Group of Applied Physics in the University of Geneva. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering of PUC-Rio. He is one of the main researchers in the Rio Quantum Network project, which will establish a metropolitan quantum key distribution network in the state of Rio de Janeiro in the next few years. (Text informed by the Lecturer).

        • b) Quantum network and Quantum internet

          Abstract: The quantum internet is emerging as an extension of the protocols for quantum communication, incorporating local processing of information together with distribution of quantum entanglement among multiple sites. Even though quantum communication initially developed with a focus on local networks, in the last years large steps were given in the distribution of quantum entanglement through satellites, establishing the first quantum networks of truly global reach. Behind this trajectory of technological development, there has also been conceptual developments in the last decades about the ubiquitous nature of quantum entanglement and its presence in various natural phenomena routinely occurring around us. Here I will discuss this arch of ideas that goes from the observation of quantum entanglement in ever simpler phenomena, up to its control and application in quantum communication of growing distance and complexity. I will focus on the work of our group and in the recent perspectives of integrating this work in the global effort to develop technologies for a quantum internet

          Lecturer: Daniel Felinto obtained his bachelor, master and doctorate degrees in Physics in the Physics Department of UFPE, with post-doctoral stages at USP and Caltech.
