Course review:
The aim is to provide students with basic knowledge on principles of particle detection in both low and high energy applications. 1. Basics of gamma and roentgen radiation detection. 2. Gas, scintillation and semiconductor detectors - physical principles, primary signal processing, charge sensitive amplifiers. 3. Principles of charge and neutral particles registration, passage of particles through matter, Bethe-Bloch formula, ionization and radiation losses, radiation length, Moliere radius, nuclear interaction length. 4. Cherenkov detectors, tracking and calorimetry (resolution, compensation), semiconductor trackers. 5. Particle camera MX-10 6. The ATLAS detector as a collection of detecting devices at the LHC accelerator at CERN. 7. Methods of neutrinos and dark matter detection.
