Thesis topics

GEM-based detectors show signs of ageing if operated for a very long time (several years). Understanding this effect is crucial in order to avoid it for the future operation of GEM-based detectors. 

Responsible: Philip Hauer

In order to test and calibrate gaseous detectors, an Fe55 is usually used. Due to the limited half-lige time of approximately 1000 days, the activity of the source decreases. Using X-ray fluorescence effects of Manganese, one could in principle mimic an Fe55. Measurements have to be performed to estimate the rate, the energy resolution and the peak position of both sources.

Responsible: Philip Hauer

In October 2021 we take data for the pilot run of the proton radius measurement5.
There will be several analyses, focusing on subsets of the experiment.
We search for students, who can help with one of those analyses.

If interested, the analysis may be compared to simulations (using an existing framework based on Geant4).

Responsible: Martin Hoffmann
