Academic Lecture: Concepts and Technologies for Data Acquisition in Particle Physics Experiments

EPD seminar
Title: Concepts and Technologies for Data Acquisition in Particle Physics Experiments
Speaker: Prof. Wolfgang Kuehn (JLU Giessen)
Time: 14:00, Friday 29 November 2019
Location: A511 Main Building
Modern experiments at state-of-the art accelerator facilities often face significant challenges in data acquisition. These arise from requirements concerning event rates, frequently exceeding 107 Hz, with correspondingly large raw data volumes, conflicting with available long-term storage capacity and data processing resources. In many cases, physics driven event filtering can be applied to address this problem. This talk will discuss concepts and examples of solutions based on existing and emerging technologies.
