This DSPE Lunch Lecture is hosted by IBS Precision Engineering. The title is: “The ALICE Detector Experiment at CERN – Delivery of the Largest Pixel Detector Ever Made”.

The lecture will be given by: Dr. Theresa Spaan-Burke, IBS Precision Engineering

Summary:

ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment) is one of eight detector experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Following a two year shutdown, the entire silicon tracker has been replaced by a monolithic-pixel tracker; the largest pixel detector ever built. In May 2021 it has been successfully lowered into the cavern and stands ready for commissioning.

We will start at 12:02pm on July 5.
