Detectors and electronic instrumentation for particle physic

Course Description

Radiation interactions with materials of the detectors. Detectors based on electromagnetic interactions, and on the visual effects. Types of the detectors: gaseous counters, scintillation detectors, semiconductors detectors, TOF-detectors, multiwire proportional chambers, time-projection chambers, Čerenkov counters, calorimeters, and spectrometers. A pulse (signal) generation and resolving in the detectors. Methods for the pulse processing and conversion, and electronic components (TDC, ADC, FADC; NIM, CAMAC, FASTBUS). Kinematical set-up of the experiments and conservation laws at low and at the high energies, till the highest at the CERN. Precision and energy resolution in the measurements with the accelerated beams. Data, events, and objects in the calorimeters and complex detectors (PID). Coincident experiments in the precise hypernuclear spectroscopy based on the reaction (e, e K+) by using electron beam at the JLab. Development of the spectrometers of higher generations of the subMeV energy resolution for kaons K+ and scattered electrons e , to investigate structure of the hypernuclei with Lambda hyperon in the light or medium-heavy nuclei. Epistemological reflections of the results of the experiments and possible applications in technology.
