Title: CMOS MAPS for Science: Overview and HEP applications

Speaker: E.Giulio Villani(Rutherford Appleton Laboratory,UK)

Moderator: Prof. Zhu Hongbo

Time:10:00 AM, Dec.8

Place: Room C305, IHEP Main Building


Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors (MAPS) are among the most successful examples of application of CMOS technology in everyday life.Since their inception, more than two decades ago as imaging devices, they were immediately recognized as having great potential use in scientific applications as well. In this talk, after an introduction to CMOS Monolithic Active Pixel sensor technology, the speaker will describe their applications in science, with particular emphasis in High energy Physics experiments and radiation dosimetry.
