Detectors and Electronics
16 Mar 2010

​The Technology Department has significant expertise in the manufacture of advanced detector systems and part of its mission is to maximise the economic and scientific impact of STFC's detector technology research.




This takes the form of developing new and innovative detector designs, ensuring efficient knowledge transfer between industry and academia and providing our industrial and academic partners with access to a wide range of world-class sensor systems.

Our Detectors and Electronics Division brings together over 100 of the STFC's brightest scientists and engineers to work on a wide range of economically important applications. Amongst others, this includes healthcare, climate change, environmental issues and security. At the same time, work continues to maintain our cutting edge position in the design of sensors for scientific applications.
