Pico-second Siliconphotomultiplier-Electronics-Crystal research-Marie- Curie-Network
PICOSEC (Pico-second Silicon photomultiplier-Electronics- & Crystal research) is an European Marie Curie training project. It aims to bring together early career researchers and experienced colleagues from across Europe, to take part in a structured, integrated and multidisciplinary training program for young researchers in an R&D project geared to develop a new class of ultra-fast photon detectors in PET and HEP. This R&D will be the core activity of a TOF-PET development for clinical applications and would open new perspectives in medical imaging and hence in the quality of patient treatment. Also future accelerators and particle physics experiments count on such detectors in order to cope with the new demands on luminosity pushed to new limits beyond the existing LHC. The Consortium is composed of public and private organizations and based on a common research program, aiming to increase the skills exchange between public and private sectors.
THE PICOSEC ITN PROJECT STARTED ON THE 1ST OF DECEMBER 2011 FOR A DURATION OF 4 YEARS.
This research project is supported by a Marie Curie Early Initial Training Network Fellowship of the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme under contract number (PITN-GA-2011-289355-PicoSEC-MCNet).
