Resources for Students

Some good books


  • W. R. Leo; Techniques for Nuclear and Particle Physics Experiments: A How-to Approach
  • C. Grupen, B. Shwartz; Particle Detectors

Semiconductor detectors

  • G. Lutz; Semiconductor Radiation Detectors
  • H. Spieler; Semiconductor Detector Systems
  • L. Rossi, N. Wermes; Pixel detectors: from fundamentals to applications

Semiconductor physics, technology, devices

  • S. M. Sze, K. M. Lee; Semiconductor Devices Physics and technology

Microelectronics and chip design (for physicists wink )

  • A. Rivetti; CMOS: Front-End Electronics for Radiation Sensors
  • B. Razavi; Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits

The Review of Particle Physics (Particle Data Group PDG)

The review of particle physics gives a good and comprehensive summary of accelarators and experiments in the session "Experimental Methods and Colliders". The chapters in this sessions are all worth reading, in particular you should read "Passage of particles through matter" and "Particle detectors at accelerators". You find the review at this link

ATLAS ITk Upgrade

Effects of radiation on silicon detectors and associated electronics

Some useful thesis on detector development

  • S. Wonsak; Characterisation of Irradiated Planar Silicon Strip Sensors for HL-LHC Applications; Chapter 2 gives a fine introduction to Si detectors (including rad damage), Chap 3 describes ALiBaVa? ;
  • M. Backhaus; High bandwidth pixel detector modules for the ATLAS Insertable B-Layer; Chapter 3 is a concise yet clear and complete introduction to particle tracking with pixel detectors;
  • T. Price; Digital Calorimetry For Future e+e− Linear Colliders and Their Impact On The Precision Measurement of the Top Higgs Yukawa Coupling; Nice introduction to Calorimetry and MAPS based calorimeters;
  • N. Lehman; Tracking with self-seeded Trigger for High Luminosity LHC; Very good description of ABC130 chip and testing procedures;
  • ...
