Scientific Detector Workshop 2013

Scientific Detector Workshop is to be held on Oct 7-11, 2013 in Florence, Italy.

Papers will be presented on the following topics:
  • Status and plans for astronomical facilities and instrumentation (ground & space)
  • Earth and Planetary Science missions and instrumentation
  • Laboratory instrumentation (physical chemistry, synchrotrons, etc.)
  • Detector materials (from Si and HgCdTe to strained layer superlattices)
  • Sensor architectures – CCD, monolithic CMOS, hybrid CMOS
  • Sensor electronics
  • Sensor packaging and mosaics
  • Sensor testing and characterization
Tentative list of invited speakers:
  • Mark McCaughrean & Mark Clampin "Space Astronomy Needs"
  • Bonner Denton "Laboratory Instrumentation"
  • Roland Bacon "MUSE - Example of Imaging Spectroscopy"
  • Ian Baker & Johan Rothman "HgCdTe APDs"
  • Jean Susini "Synchrotrons"
  • Rolf Kudritzki "Stellar Astrophysics: Perspectives on the Evolution of Detectors"
  • Jim Gunn "Why Imaging Spectroscopy?"
  • Harald Michaelis "Planetary Science"
  • Robert Green "Imaging Spectroscopy for Earth Science and Exoplanet Exploration"

  1. No French presentators?

    1. As far as I know, Jean Susini is a French member of the ESRF in Grenoble.
