A dedicated pixel simulation and verification environment is currently under development for the performance analysis and optimization of alternative pixel readout chip architectures for next generation high energy physics experiments. Automated verification functions will be part of such a framework to enable extensive simulations of large sets of pixel hits and triggers to be performed in an automated fashion for global architecture evaluations and for all incremental extensions and refinements of a final design.


The RAPID (Real Time Active Pixel Dosimetry) project is focused on radiation protection in Interventional Radiology. During all their professional activities, interventional radiologists and staff members are frequently exposed to protracted and fractionated low doses of ionizing radiation. In order to comply with international guidelines on radiation protection, exposure to ionizing radiation also restricts the number of procedures that operators can periodically undertake. It is therefore necessary to minimize individual exposure to X-rays during radiological procedures through an on line monitoring of absorbed dose.


  • The 3-year project, started on February 2013, aims at fabricating a Lab-on-Chip system that integrates in a single device all the functional modules needed for the rapid and reliable execution of complete bio-analytical protocols, from sample preparation to parallel detection of multiple analytes, without the need for pre-analytical sample treatments and bulky external instrumentation to detect the analytical signal and to actuate the microfluidics. 
In this project, we propose the application of numerical modelling, i.e. device-level simulation tools, to simulate the electrical characteristics of Silicon-on-Diamond (SoD) devices originally conceived for charged particle sensors but suitably applicable to bio-sensors.
Actually, the biocompatibility and electrochemical properties of diamond foster its adoption for bio-sensing applications. In particular, its high bio inertness, high electrochemical stability, and optical transparency make diamond a material of great interest for neuronal activity study.
