INSTRUMENTATION

Development (up to the prototype stage) of new gas detectors with improved capabilities in tracking, charged particle identification, photon detection, and timing in the picosecond region, capable of operating under very high beam intensity conditions.

Development of new silicon detectors based on Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors (MAPS) for high-precision tracking, and energy loss measurement for advanced particle identification.

Development of beyond state-of-art radiation detectors based on semiconductors (Cadmium Telluride, Cadmium Zinc Telluride) able to perform high-precision measurements of X-ray and gamma-ray photons in different environments/conditions.

Production of polarized nucleon targets (at the prototype level) using solid state materials combined with superconducting high-field magnets and the Dynamic Nuclear Polarization method.
Development of cryogenically-cooled cluster/pellet/microjet sources to be used as targets in a variety of collision setups (storage ring experiments, electron accelerators, or laser-driven hadron accelerators).

Optimization of the polarization of protons and antiprotons beams and targets for the GSI/FAIR storage ring.

Optimization of high-intensity polarized electron and positron beam sources, and full design of the Hydro-Møller polarimeter detector using high-voltage monolithic active pixel sensors (HV-MAPS).
