Nuclear Physics Thesis

The Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. thesis in Nuclear Physics can be related to data taking, data analysis and detector developement with a different level of complexity depending on the thesis level.  Also thesis related to the simulations of experimental apparata and experiments can be assigned.
The thesis are always related to the scientific activity within the different INFN 'experiments' which are listed below together with the email addresses of the reference persons.

NEWCHIM:

In the framework of the construction of a novel Femtoscope Array for Correlation and Spectroscopy, named FARCOS [1], featuring high angular and energy resolution and able to address several open cases in nuclear physics, we (at INFN-Milano) are in charge of the development of a multi-channel double-polarity selectable-gain VLSI frontend to be coupled to the Double-Sided Silicon Strip Detectors of FARCOS and of the frontend to readout the signal of the photodiodes coupled to the CsI(Tl) scintillators acting as third detection stage. The student will collaborate in the qualification of the 32-channel frontend boards, equipped with the ASICs, the line drivers and the slow-control and or the readout of the scintillator detectors. In particular he/she will collaborate in the qualification of the assembled boards, assessing the performance of the system (linearity, energy resolution, cross-talk) and will take part in the design of the final version of the slow-control interface and of the power distribution system. The student will have the possibility to shape the focus of the research activity according to his/her skills and interests.
The student will have the possibility to work in a real research lab, with hands-on approach combined with a strong theoretical background in the field of radiation detectors and low-noise frontend electronics, sharing the daily lab life with PhD students, junior and experienced researchers.
Basic knowledge of analog electronics is preferred, no knowledge of nuclear physics is required.
