Aug. 7th, 2013
The Medipix2 (or Timepix) pixel detector readout chips are combined with silicon sensors using the same techniques that were developed for the LHC pixel detector systems. What makes the device particularly handy for classroom use is the USB-based readout system and the associated software which were developed by the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics at the Czech Technical University (CTU) in Prague.
