The complexity and resolving capability of detectors for high energy physics experiments have been steadily increasing. The front-end electronics, which provides the readout of signals from the sensing elements of these detectors, has observed a corresponding increase in complexity, functionality, and transistor count. A major breakthrough came with the advent of front-end Application-Specific...

Since its inception in 1965, Moore’s law has had a large impact on many technologies. This presentation will review how these changes have influenced the design of trigger and DAQ systems, and attempt to extrapolate the trends identified towards the future.
Dr Marion Matters-Kammerer (TU Eindhoven)
Terahertz imaging and spectroscopy based on optical and electronic generation and detection of radiation has resulted in a wealth of new application opportunities in the area of medical surgery (e.g. tumor margin detection), biomedical analysis (e.g. protein interaction), non-destructive testing (e.g. production control), security (e.g. airport scanners, detection of concealed weapons) as well...

A classical imager contains a 2D array of pixels responsible for the capture of the optical signal, surrounded by peripheral electronics which is reading out all pixels and sending the obtained image off-chip. For almost all application a trend towards high image resolution (and therefore smaller pixels) is observed. However, this leads to several performance issues. First, the area per...

Driven by the availability of modern photolithographic techniques, the Micro Pattern Gas Detectors (MPGD) have been introduced in the last years of the 20th century by pioneer activities: Gas Electron Multipliers (GEM) and Micromegas, later followed by thick-GEM, resistive GEM (RETGEM) and novel micro-pattern devices. Nowadays, a flourishing of R&D activities dedicated to MPGDs and of...
Jurriaan Schmitz (University of Twente)
This keynote lecture describes the art to precisely manufacture solid-state devices at the scale of micrometers down to tens of nanometers. The latest developments in microchip fabrication are presented, with their possible consequences in circuit design and computing. Further, the use of microfabrication for particle detectors is reviewed.

Monolithic pixel detectors have been studied for many years for their potential to combine the possibility to build a very low mass detector with very high granularity pixel resolution in high volume 8" CMOS productions. Different technical solutions have been studied and were implemented in tracking detectors. The application has been limited however to low radiation environments. Prominent...
Marcella Diemoz (Universita e INFN, Roma I (IT))
Huge calorimetric systems built to ensure the Higgs discovery and new physics searches have borne scrutiny of collisions and harsh environment during the first LHC run. Few key aspects of the performance of these systems and lessons learnt in this context will be discussed. In the future, several crucial physics problems have to be addressed in different scientific fields and this research...
Roelof de Vries (PANalytical)
PANalytical is a company in the Netherlands that designs and builds X-ray diffraction and X-ray fluorescence systems. Systems are sold (and serviced) worldwide and many are operational 24/7. Since the year 2000 PANalytical has been an industrial partner of the Medipix collaboration. The aim for PANalytical was to integrate Medipix detectors in their X-ray diffraction equipment to increase...
Bernard Denis (CERN)
A the end of the 90's the Medipix2 Collaboration was formed with aim of developing a photon counting chip taking advantage of the deep sub-micron CMOS technology to develop a detector with a very small pixel size and a large number of pixels per chip. In 2007, a new collaboration was established to develop a new generation of Medipix chip able to mitigate the effects of charge sharing and...
Werner Riegler (CERN)
The LHC experiment collaborations are presently preparing major upgrades of their detectors during the long LHC shutdowns planned in 2018/2019 and 2023/2024. This presentation will discuss the key challenges for these upgrades and will review the main detector technologies under consideration.

447. Laser acceleration of electrons at a dielectric structure -- from novel accelerator technology to ultrafast measurement devices
Peter Hommelhoff (Univ. of Erlangen and Max Planck for Quantum Optics)
In free space, efficient momentum transfer over an extended distance between an oscillating field and a massive charged particle is impossible. With a proper boundary, this notion does not hold any longer. We have recently shown that electrons can be continuously accelerated with laser light at a dielectric grating structure. With low-power femtosecond laser pulses at 800 nm we could...
Teresa Marrodán Undagoitia (Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik)
Detectors using liquid noble gas media like xenon or argon have shown a great potential for direct dark matter searches. Particles interacting with these targets cause the emission of light and free electrons, via excitation and ionization processes, respectively. The pulse shape of the prompt light signal and/or the ratio between light and extracted charge can be used to discriminate between...

The precision of large-area spatial measurements has improved dramatically over the last 50 years due to the invention of silicon strip and pixel detectors. The precision of large-area time measurements, however, has only recently started to attract a similar level of attention and investment. The ultimate time resolution of large-area devices is not yet known, but the intrinsic resolution of...
Mr Erik Van Der Bij (CERN)
White Rabbit provides sub-nanosecond accuracy and picoseconds precision of synchronization for large distributed systems. It also allows for deterministic and reliable data delivery at a gigabit rate. The Ethernet-based network can connect thousands of nodes with typical distances of 10 km between nodes while even a 1000 km link is in operation with a lower accuracy. The hardware, firmware and...
Prof. Martin Pohl (Universite de Geneve (CH))
I will review the transfer of technology from accelerator-based particle detection to space-borne astroparticle physics. Requirements for detection, identification and measurement of ions, electrons and photons in space will be recalled. The additional requirements and restrictions imposed by the launch process in manned and unmanned space flight, as well as by the hostile environment in orbit...

The European Southern Observatory (ESO) is now entering the construction phase of what will be the world’s largest optical/near-IR telescope, the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT). With a 39-m primary aperture, the E-ELT is the most ambitious ground-based optical/near-IR facility currently forseen, and will provide astronomers with unprecedented sensitivity and spatial resolution. The...
