The CERN, which stands for European Organization for Nuclear Research (in French: Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire), is the world’s largest organization dedicated to particle physics research using the LHC to accelerate particles and study their behavior. It has made significant discoveries like the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012, an important particle in understanding how other particles acquire mass, and fosters scientific collaboration worldwide. It is located on the border between Switzerland and France, near Geneva.

Summer Student Programme

The CERN Summer Student Programme is a summer program that provides undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct research and receive training in particle physics at CERN. Participants work on research projects, attend lectures, and collaborate with other international students. The program typically lasts for 8 to 13 weeks during the summer months.

 Alibava Systems Participation at CERN Summer Student Programme 2023

Since 2020, Dr Carmen Garcia, partner of Alibava Systems and research professor at the IFIC, conducts during 2 sessions (11th & 12th July) a training about the basics principles of operation of a silicon strip detector (such as those operating in ATLAS), the collection of charge as a function of bias voltage, the determination of depletion voltage and the study of charge sharing between strips.

To support her explanations, Dr. Garcia uses our Educational Alibava System (EASy).
