The Know-How of the department covers the design, the electrical and microscopic characterization of silicon sensors, the construction and wire bonding of detector modules, and the test of such detector modules using in-house lab tests. For this purpose, we operate two clean rooms (class ISO 6 to 7) equipped with several high-tech setups and equipment.
Since the active areas (and thus the number of needed sensors) of the current and future silicon tracking devices have become increasingly larger, the production process of the detectors must be commercialized. We have been working for several years on this topic and were collaborating with the semiconductor foundry Infineon for this purpose.
The following video (in German) presents this activity.
