Cryogenic Detectors for low Energy Particle Detection

Trainee: Ilia Blinov
Supervisor: Stefan Stahl

The trap experiments at the AD and FLAIR used for precision determination of the antiproton magnetic moment require amplifier technologies with exceptional sensitivity and ruggedness.

The Fellow was based at Stahl Electronics and had links between the company and experts at GSI in Darmstadt to develop single particle Cryogenic Detectors. As part of ongoing improvements, the R&D has now designed a novel detection system which is easier to operate, rugged under the adverse conditions found at ELENA and FLAIR, and features much higher detection sensitivity by using latest generation electronic detectors.
