Instrumentation -- state of the art and a look into the future

Feb 22, 2019, 5:10 PM


Invited Talk Summary


Christian Joram (CERN)


Progress in experimental physics relies often on advances and breakthroughs in instrumentation, leading to substantial gains in measurement accuracy, efficiency and speed, or even opening completely new approaches and methods. At a time when the R&D for the upgrade of the large LHC experiments is still in full swing, the Experimental Physics Department of CERN has proposed a new technological R&D programme from 2020 onwards that will rely on a sustained cooperation with the HEP community. The programme covers the domains detectors, electronics, software and intimately connected domains like mechanics, cooling and experimental magnets.

This talk will try to highlight new ideas, advances and breakthroughs presented at this conference and, whenever possible and meaningful, put them in relation to the planned R&D programme.
