TSU radiophysicists improved sensors for the Large Hadron Collider
Students of the Faculty of Radiophysics are optimizing the technology for producing X-ray radiation sensors based on gallium arsenide compensated by chromium, which is used in the work of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This project was judged the best at the all-Russian competition of scientific and technical creativity of youth STTY-2017 in the category New Materials and Chemical Technologies.
The team of students included Leila Shaimerdenova, Ivan Shcherbakov, and Irina Kolesnikova. They work under the guidance of Professor Oleg Tolbanov at the Laboratory of Functional Electronics. The technology of compensation of gallium arsenide by chromium that they performed is a unique development by TSU.
