Silicon detectors to CERN
Customer: CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research
Challenge: Developing silicon wafer technology for the most powerful particle accelerator in the world, the LHC.
Solution: VTT developed technology for the assembly of silicon sensors used in the particle accelerator. This included developing the processes for sensor circuit integration and the assembly of over one thousand high-definition sensor elements.
Methods developed by VTT were required for the most challenging nuclear physics experiment in the world.
The same technology can also be applied to medical imaging, such as construction of a digital X-ray camera.
