|Research Project Title
Advanced Silicon Drift Detectors applied to fundamental physics studies of muonic atoms
|Research Project Description
The project I propose foresee the construction and characterization of Silicon Drift Detector (SDD) for the FAMU experiment. During this year there will be the upgrade of the FAMU apparatus to reach the definitive configuration for the final measurement.
In this context I shall contribute to the target update, studying the use of SDD to monitor the intensity of the beam inside the target. The characterization of the SDD will be performed using dedicated simulations and by laboratory measurements.
The study of the positioning of SDD in the target for the final measurement will be carried on using the GEANT4 simulation of the FAMU target.
