This is the 2nd EPS Technology and Innovation Group's (TIG) Maker Event for Science, Technology and Interfaces at IdeaSquare, CERN.
The purpose of the event is to offer young physicists and engineers new hands-on skills in hardware, software and related interfaces, around the domain of Health. Limited participation is through application (see Registration).
Physics and engineering students need various skills which -classically- are difficult to obtain during studies. Experiments necessitate many hard skills, such as physical understanding of the process, but also a bundle of other skills like know-how in instrumentation, hard- and software and strong team-work capabilities. In a physics laboratory an ever-changing neuralgic problem is interfacing of the experiment with –finally- the human who analyses, interprets and exploits the data.
This Hands-on-event aims to target this situation.
We propose to work on interfacing employing “hands-on” = really available devices. “Really available” means that the devices are modern, compact and affordable also for a standard laboratory. Instrumental building blocks could be for example:
- Compact diamond-based Quantum-effect magnetic sensoring device.
- Optical nm-resolution sensor device, based on superresolution
- Comprehensive and easy-to use FPGA software.
