Pico-second Silicon Photomultiplier-Electronics & Crystal Research (PicoSEC)
This R&D will be the core activity of a Time-of-Flight-PET development for clinical applications and would open new perspectives in medical imaging and hence in the quality of patient treatment. Also future accelerators and particle physics experiments count on such detectors in order to cope with the new demands on luminosity pushed to new limits beyond the existing LHC. The Consortium is composed of public and private organizations and based on a common research program, aiming to increase the skills exchange between public and private sectors.
