Thank you for visiting the home page of silicon development within the
Energy Physics Group at the Cavendish
Laboratory. Our activities and expertise cover all aspects of
the design, development and evaluation of silicon microstrip sensors
for particle physics experiments, ranging from the design of the wafer masks through to
final implementation of the detector.
Our work is currently focussed on the development, production and quality control of
silicon microstrip sensors, modules and readout electronics for use in the barrel region of the ATLAS silicon
We are also playing a leading role in the development of the data acquisition for the online test and calibration
of the ATLAS SCT.
