Project summary

The main goal of the project is developing of the new technologies and design solutions for new generation of the linear colliders calorimetry. The challenge of the tremendous growth for the colliding particles energy has urged detector designers to create miniature detecting elements which are able to work in strong magnetic fields with high efficiency. This problem can be solved on the modern high technology base using new materials and new design solutions.
The participating Institutions are highly experienced in the calorimeters creation for a number of large experiments for high energy physics at HERA, LEP, LHC.
The results of the proposed project are expected to be used for the next generation colliders, and the constructed calorimeter prototype will demonstrate working capacity of the new design solutions and material components.
The photodetectors operational in strong magnetic fields with the reasonable signal/background ratio will be created.
The project meets properly all ISTC requirements because more than 50% of the participants have experience in the weapons production. They will take a part in the high-technology developments of the project, and this will be very important, particularly, in production of calorimeter prototypes.
The duration of the project is 2 years The total labor expenditures are about 9900 person*day and about 5100 person*day are covered by the military complex experts.
The participation of DESY (Hamburg, Germany) as a partner seems to be very important from both financial and scientific point of view.
DESY is one of three world centers which co-ordinate efforts and R&D works for the next generation linear colliders.
The technical realization of the project will be performed as follows. At the first stage, a search of the optimal conceptual design solutions will be made through simulation under certain requirements for space and energy resolutions and under production technology requirements accounting for the detector cost. Sample units of the photodetectors will be developed and tested. At the second stage, with the chosen solutions for design parameters, materials, read-out electronics, the prototypes will be assembled and tested at the particle beams (electrons, hadrons, photons) to determine and analyze the prototypes features.


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
