Semiconductor detector days at CPPM
The "R & D instrumentation" network dedicated to semiconductor detectors (IN2P3-IRFU), created in 2012 with the aim of promoting exchanges between the various laboratories active in the field, is organizing two half-days, on 25 and 26 June 2019 at the CPPM (CNRS - AMU) on the theme of fast detectors and their associated electronics.
These days are primarily aimed at users of different semiconductor detectors (instrumentalist) wishing to discover and understand the latest associated technologies, their performance and limitations.

Euclid Star Prize awarded to CPPM and IPNL teams
The characterization team's expertise is based on an early experience with IR detectors in the framework of the SNAP collaboration and expanded to the highest level within the Euclid project. The team members combine strong complementary skills: mechanical and thermal design of the bench, software development for acquisition and bench control & automation, instrumentation, test procedures of pixel detectors. Thanks to the close collaboration of CPPM & IPNL, the team has developed and validated dedicated test facilities of high quality and excellent running efficiency with a fully automated acquisition scheme. The characterization of the 20 IR detectors has taken over one year with 85% efficiency, leading to 400 TB of data from which the team will derive pixel map products and models for the SGS. The emphasis during these tests was the collection of data to enable the control of relative pixel gains, non-linearities, and persistence.
The EPS High Energy and Particle Physics Prize 2019
The European Physical Society (EPS) has awarded the 2019 High Energy and Particle Physics Prize to the CDF and D0 collaborations for their outstanding contributions to the discovery of the quark top and the precision measurements of its properties to date. . --> For mroe information :

NectarCAM sees its first events of atmospheric cascades
The camera NectarCAM, equipped with its first 61 detection modules, saw its first events of atmospheric cascades in the sky of Berlin Adlershof, the night of 22 to 23 May 2019. She arrived on the site of the prototype MST (Medium Size Telescope ) May 16, 2019 from the CEA / IRFU to Saclay.
After the necessary ground checks, the camera was successfully loaded into the telescope by the IN2P3, CEA / IRFU and Desy Zeuthen teams. Close cooperation between all the teams of the NectarCAM consortium, not forgetting the telescope team, made it possible to carry out this first objective, which is essential for the project, before the on-site deployment at the end of 2020 in the Canaries.
The CPPM constructed the data acquisition system (event builder) using an innovative low cost approach.
Franco-Chinese summer school hosted by CPPM
At the initiative of the French Embassy in China and with the Campus France agency, France Excellence Summer Schools are offered every year throughout the country, in different research fields. The objective of this program is to improve the quality and quantity of recruitment of Chinese doctoral students in French universities. The Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille (CNRS - AMU) and the Institut de Physique Nucléaire de Lyon (CNRS - Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 - Université de Lyon) are jointly organising, as part of this programme, a summer school on the physics of the two infinites, from 1 to 11 July.
