Development of Silicon Pixel und Scintillating Fibre Detectors for the new LHCb Tracking System

For the planned upgrade of the LHCb experiment our group develops new detector technologies to be applied in the new tracking system of this experiment. The main challenge is to ensure an excellent tracking capability at very high particle fluxes and radiation levels. We offer several bachelor and master thesis in the fields of

  1.  Simulation and optimization of the detector design.
  2. Investigation of the detector performance at very high particle fluxes.
  3. Comparison of the detector performance before and after irradiation with X-rays, neutrons and protons.
  4. Development and improvement of Readout Systems for detector tests.
