UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to host workshop on Germanium-based detectors and technologies

April 9, 2010

The University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory will host a workshop on germanium-based detectors and technologies May 18-20 in Berkeley, California. The goal of the workshop is to explore the status, prospects, and issues for Ge-based detectors for science and security applications. The workshop will bring together researchers engaged in current and possible next-generation detectors based on germanium as well as experts in germanium-based device development and production. The workshop scope includes applications, crystal growth and characterization, detector and device technologies, and readout and signal processing. An overall aim is to provide a true workshop setting to encourage full and frank discussion, not only of technical progress and emerging ideas, but also of enduring challenges for which improved solutions are needed. Workshop participation is by invitation only; all those interested in attending this workshop are encouraged to respond to with a short description of their interest and/or proposed contribution.
