UK HEP Instrumentation Summer School

Welcome to the first UK HEP Instrumentation Summer School! The school will be held over the first two weeks of July 2024 (1st - 12th) at Jesus College, the University of Oxford. 

The school serves as a follow-on to the Advanced UK Instrumentation Training programme, and will feature two weeks of tutorials and hands-on exercises covering:

  • Device simulation in TCAD
  • Electronics design and simulation
  • Electrical characterisation of silicon detectors
  • Radiation detection with silicon detectors

Participants will step through the life cycle of PiN and LGAD sensors, from simulations of their fabrication and expected electrical response, to the design and characterisation of their readout electronics, to measurements in the lab of their performance.

Evening activities are also planned, including talks by industrial partners on career opportunities outside of academia, distinguished academics on navigating a path through academia, and tips on engaging the broader public about fundamental research.

Application deadline: June 3

Registration fee: £1590. This covers the cost of accommodation and food during the school, along with social events and coffee breaks. Funding has been provided by UKRI STFC to pay the registration fee for 20 STFC-funded PhD students
