The University of Birmingham

The Birmingham Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics groups have a long track record of developing detector and trigger technology for high energy physics experiments. The Particle Physics Group made a significant contribution to the ATLAS Semiconductor Tracker, which we partially constructed, and we are coordinating part of the Tracker (ITK) Upgrade. We have recently upgraded and expanded our silicon instrumentation laboratories and have a number of ongoing R&D projects involving depleted MAPS. The group was also heavily involved in the construction and operation of the ATLAS first level calorimeter trigger and is working towards its upgrade for the next phase of LHC running. The Nuclear Physics group was responsible for the design and construction of the current ALICE central trigger processor as well as its upgrade for Run 3.
