Two international physics conferences held in Liverpool


The University of Liverpool hosted the 18th RD50 Workshop, which was held in the United Kingdom for the first time.

The CERN Research and Development collaboration – radiation hard semiconductor devices for very high luminosity colliders – is dedicated to developing detectors able to withstand the unprecedented radiation levels anticipated close to the collision regions of the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider, the proposed upgrade to CERN’s Large Hadron Collider due to begin operations in the next decade.

Radiation hardness experts from 12 countries attended the conference in the Foresight Centre.

Dr Gianluigi Casse from the Particle Physics Group, and RD50 co-spokesperson, said: “Despite the very full scientific programme which included the ATLAS Collaboration Planar Pixel Sensor Research and development meeting immediately afterwards, there were many new results and delegates enjoyed their surroundings.”
