The Electronics Laboratory of the School of ECE contributes to CERN research

The Electronics Laboratory of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technical University of Crete, has started a cooperation with CERN ( The European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN, located in Geneva, is one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research. The Electronics Labs of TUC will develop computer simulation models describing the effects of high levels of ionizing radiation on integrated circuit technology. The simulation models are used in the design of high energy physics experiments at the CERN, such as the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC). Headed by Associate Professor Matthias Bucher, the Microelectronics group of the Electronics Laboratory is contributing to CERN's effort to upgrade sensing electronics to a 7-fold increase of radiation doses.
