Research Objective

The Joint Research Activity ULISINT covers three fields of large-area tracking and vertex detectors, each of them backbones of the upcoming CBM and PANDA experiments at the international research facility FAIR under construction in Darmstadt, Germany:

  • a thin fast micro-strip tracking detector system for large-area coverage
  • a thin fast hybrid pixel detector system for tracking in very high particle densities
  • an ultra-thin monolithic pixel detector system with very high spatial resolution for decay vertex identification.

ULISINT is a successor to the research activity ULISI that was completed in HadronPhysics2. While ULISI focused on the development of the thin detector technologies themselves, the demonstration of their integration into complete systems usable for hadron physics experiments is the research aim of the current activity.
