About Detector Laboratory

Detector Laboratory at Inter-University Accelerator Centre provides infrastructure & support for development of radiation detectors for various research experiments. Considering the importance of heavy ion nuclear reaction research at IUAC, special attention has been made to the development of low energy heavy ion detectors. These include low pressure multi wire proportional chamber, ionization detectors and silicon strip detectors. Laboratory is involved in research & development of multi channel readout electronics for strip detectors, fast timing pre-amplifiers, and pulse shaping amplifiers. The laboratory is equipped with all types of modern radiation detectors, facilities for gas detector development, nuclear instrumentation and data acquisition. Detector lab provides research support and training to university users on radiation detectors, experimental setup and related subjects.
