IMB-CNM talks: New 50μm thin LGAD for Tracking and Timing Applications - Mar Carulla, IMB-CNM.

Sala de Actos Pepe Millán, IMB-CNM, Campus UAB.
23/03/2018 11:30 a.m.

Abstract: The recent development and the promising performance of a new silicon detector known as Low Gain Avalanche Detector (LGAD) has increased the interest on these devices at the High Energy Physic community [1]. LGAD detectors improve the particle arrival time of the usual silicon arrays exhibiting good spatial and timing resolutions. Devices as Silicon Photo-Multipliers (SiPM) and Avalanche Photo Diodes (APD) have a higher gain than the LGAD detector but they cannot be segmented without spoiling the timing measurement. The improvement of timing resolution on tracking detectors allows collecting only the data of time-compatible events and rejecting those events that cannot be associated to a track due to an excessive time difference. Therefore, more data can be taken and pile-up effect is avoided, making LGADs good candidates for the upgrade of the HGTD [2], ATLAS Forward Proton detector (AFP) [3,4], Endcap Timing Layer [5], and CMS-Totem Proton Precision Spectroscopy detector (CT-PPS) projects [6,7]. Some LGAD prototypes for the CT-PPS project were installed and are already working [8]. The optimization of the LGAD structures for the HGTD and CT-PPS experiment and their experimental performances will be presented.

IMB-CNM talks: Advancing Cell-based Measurements in Microfluidic Systems with Electronic Tools - Dr. Darwin Reyes, IMB-CNM.

Sala de Actos Pepe Millán, IMB-CNM, Campus UAB.

Abstract: Microf luidic devices have demonstrated numerous advantages and capabilities that conventional tools cannot compete with. From f ine control over small sample volumes (pL to nL) to f ine control over cellular microenvironments, the promising future of this technology include advances in areas that span from basic and applied research in biology, to diagnostic tools and personalized medicine. Integrating functionalities to microf luidic devices, such as electronic components, is not only convenient due to its ease of miniaturization, but also provide the devices with enhanced capabilities. We have developed single and multilayer microf luidic platforms with integrated electronic manipulation and measurement functionalities to generate cell co-cultures and study cell migration. The cell co-culture generated creates an environment not easily attainable with conventional systems as is the Boyden chamber. In addition to the cell co-culture system, a cell migration platform where cells are optically and electronically monitored, in real-time was assembled and tested. This microf luidic platforms promises ample possibilities in the future for fundamental and applied research in cell biology as well as other areas such as diagnostics, personalized medicine, and tissue engineering.

Chips, the insides of the mobile - IMB-CNM

YoMo: The Youth Mobile Festival
27th February – 2nd March 2018, La Farga de L’Hospitalet, Barcelona

Step into a white room to build the chips used in mobile phones and experiment with sensor chips. Visitors to the stand will learn what chips are, how they are made, and that chips are fundamental components of electronic devices (mobiles, tablets, PCs, etc.) and other devices like wearables.

So what about the future UE Research and Innovation Framework Programme? - Carmen Hormigo, IMB-CNM.

Sala de Actos Pepe Millán, IMB-CNM, Campus UAB.

Abstract: resaltar las influencias que una serie de documentos están teniendo en la concepción del futuro FP9, no solo científicos sino también financieros (al final los que deciden son los ministros del ECOFIN). La idea es sensibilizar a la audiencia sobre hacia dónde va a ir la I+I, tanto en lo que queda de H2020, especialmente en 2020, piloto del FP9. Y, ¡cómo no! hablar de los mission oriented projects. Entre esos documentos los más importantes ahora mismo son los que os indico abajo, pero no os asustáis que no os abrumaré con retorica comunitaria. Creo que es importante saber dónde están las líneas básicas de la I+I del futuro cercano.
