Description

The field of particle physics spans 24 orders of magnitude in energy – from axion masses to the highest energy cosmic rays. The species of particles we have to contend with – hadrons, leptons, bosons, neutrinos, dark matter, phonons, quasi-particles, etc. – are unique and equally challenging in nature. Because of this diversity, particle physics has traditionally been a hotbed of innovative detector research. This talk will cover some of the challenges facing us today in detector technology and overview some of the most interesting solutions to those challenges.
