Pixel Detectors: from Segmented Diodes to Monolithic Imaging Sensors

Laura Gonella (Birmingham University)


Pixel detectors are the technology of choice for vertex and tracking detectors in particle and nuclear physics experiments. This seminar will review the working principle of these detectors and the technological progress underpinning their evolution. Both state-of-art pixel detectors and new developments will be presented.
