IoP HEPP Committee Half-Day Meeting on Development of Depleted Monolithic Active Pixel Sensor (DMAPS).  

DMAPS technologies are the subject of intense R&D for use as replacement technologies for current detector systems, and are an attractive choice for many future programmes in particle, nuclear and medical physics.  Monolithic pixels are the subject of a major international research programme to define processing variants which could also deliver the levels of radiation hardness needed at hadron colliders and other high radiation environments, while still meeting strict requirements on material budget, high granularity and overall cost.

Recent progress has been remarkable, and the potential for new technologies to be a complete game-changer not just for vertexing and tracking, but even for high granularity calorimetry makes this a topic of wide interest across the experimental particle and nuclear physics communities. The new UK facilities for hadron radiotherapy provide another fruitful area for applications. All these, and other areas, make this an extremely timely topic for an IoP Half Day Meeting
