Welcome to the WaveCatcher and SAMPIC International Workshop!
It has now been several years since the WaveCatcher modules and more recently the SAMPIC modules based on analog memories were released. Both perform very fast signal sampling with a very high precision in time and are being used mostly by partner Research labs, but also by private companies.
These acquisition systems are used in test benches or experiences in a multitude of fields: particle beam monitoring, accelerators, R&D on detectors, study of new fast photo-detectors (SiPMs, MCP-PMTs), new generation of detectors (LGAD, pico-second Micromegas, diamonds) for high energy physics, TOF-PET for medical imaging, …
The development of these modules and associated Firmware/Software and Libraries has always been enriched by users’ experience and feedback, and we are grateful for that.
This is why we think that gathering together the WaveCatcher and SAMPIC community in order to share the different experiences on instrumentation/electronics/software/offline analysis/… should be very stimulating and enriching for all of us and would contribute to guide us for new technical developments and/or evolutions.
The goal of this workshop is:
- to share experience between users and the system designers
- to present experience feedback
- to describe future needs
- to think about development sharing
Every person interested in the kind of developments described above is welcome to the workshop!
During this meeting, one day and a half will be dedicated for presentations (and posters) about experience with the modules, and half a day to practical sessions with the modules on test benches.
We hope to see you soon at LAL.
