Working Group 1


Hardware

Description

 

Working Group 1 (WG1) will explore novel scintillator materials and geometries; characterization of SiPMs and other semiconductors; theoretical studies; simulation performance of new materials as system components; development and optimisation of electronic circuits and mainly FPGAs and ASICs; optimisation of peripheral detector components, such as motors, rotating tables, gantries and the necessary mechanical and shielding parts.

This WG will:
• asses if new materials can be used as detector components
• define how they should be treated
• determine what are their limitations including both performance and cost
• suggest if technology is mature for their application
• integrate hardware components with data acquisition software
• produce low cost imaging systems
• produce innovative multimodal prototypes for animal and clinical application
