A PhD is offered for a research project based on the development of detector and instrumentation for the FP420 project at the new CERN Large Hadron Collider and their use for the exploitation of the physics data.
This research will involve the construction of edgeless detectors that will be placed close to the beam inside the beam-pipe vacuum in order to measure very low momentum transfer interactions 420 m from the primary interaction point.
The development of the detector and readout for use inside the vacuum of the beam-pipe places many challenging constraints on the choice of design and technology.
In addition a suitable candidate will take part in the physics program that can be undertaken with this detector system using the FP420 detector in conjunction with the ATLAS detector.
