Control and Testing of High-speed Electronics for Particle Detectors
Modern electronics are often designed for general purpose, and its
behaviour is later defined by programable hardware, such as Field
Programable Gate Array (FPGA). This project is aimed to control and test
an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) called
FGATI newly developed for particle detectors with a timing resolution of less than one
nano-second. The student will learn how to control an ASIC, how to write
a FPGA code known as the firmware and test the response of the hardware
necessary for particle detectors used in TRIUMF and J-PARC, Japan.
This is a perfect project for students in electrical engineering or experimental physics who are interested in hardware programming and built-in controls.
An experience of a muon measurement at TRIUMF
You can join and analyze the data of on-going projects, or,
you can write a research proposal to obtain a beam time to start a real
research of your own.
Our on going projects right now are
M1437 (Hunting for negative muonium (Mu-) state in a cage-type electride C12A7) and
M1524 (muSR of electride Ca2N and spinoride RE2C),
both of which deals materials called electride, where the electron itself behaves as the negative ion of the material. This is a good playground for electron catalist or functional mateirals.
More conventinal project of magnetism or superconductivity is being planned.
