PID-2022-0507: Test of FOOT detectors for Super-FRS Experiment collaboration

Project IDPID-2022-0507
FieldSuper FRS
Eligible groupStudents with Master degree / PhD students
Duration3 months

Abstract:

The EXPERT setup is aimed at studies of exotic nuclear structure of unbound isotopes which are created in reactions with radioactive beams and decay in flight. Trajectories of decay products are tracked by the microstrip detectors. The new generation detectors FOOT are currently under tests in lab, and the project work is in conducting measurements of cosmic rays by the FOOT detectors operated by the local DAQ (newly developed from the detector lab Peruja University, which must be adapted to the GSI environment)

PID-2022-0506: DESPEC Analysis Algorithms

Project IDPID-2022-0506
FieldNUSTAR
Eligible groupResearchers
Durationno duration fixed yet

Abstract:

The goal of the project is the development of analysis algorithms for the DEGAS Ge detector system. The unusual detector geometry of DEGAS requires dedicated algorithms to account for cross-scattered gamma rays in addback and anti-Compton mode. Another peculiarity is obtaining proper time spectra from FEBEX data. Here walk effects and the White rabbit time reference need to be taken into account.

PID-2022-0505: Nuclear Reaction Cross-Section Database for Space and Heavy-Ion Therapy Applications: Proton Data

Porject IDPID-2022-0505
FieldBiophysics
Eligible groupBachelor / Master students
Duration8 to 12 weeks

Abstract:

The project will consist of the addition of proton data to the nuclear reaction cross-section database as these data are currently not included and protons are very important both for heavy-ion therapy and for radiation protection in space.

PID-2022-0504: Splice resistance measurement using the Quench Detection system

Project IDPID-2022-0504
FieldSC Magnets and Testing
Eligible groupMaster students
Duration6 to 12 months (partly remote)

Abstract:

The SIS100 superconducting cryo-modules are connected to each other with so-called splices – electrical connections with a residual resistance of few nanoohms at cryogenic condition. Keeping this resistance low is extremely important for the proper operation of superconducting circuits. Therefore, development of a splice resistance monitoring system is strongly recommended. Typically, such a measurement is performed by using high precision (8½ digit) voltmeters and high current source. The aim of the project is to provide an alternative measurement method using the already existing data acquisition function of the QuD system. Despite of the limited resolution of QuD channels, the new signal-processing concept was investigated showing that the method can be successfully applied in practice. This project aims the complete development of the signal processing software, which later on will be a part of the SIS100 machine monitoring system.

PID-2022-0503: Strange particles reconstruction in the CBM experiment at FAIR

Project IDPID-2022-0503
FieldCBM (Machine learning and Computational Sciences)
Eligible groupMaster students / PhDs / Postdoctoral
Duration3 to 12 months

Abstract:

The subject of the internship will be identification and reconstruction of strange particles in the CBM experiment at FAIR. As part of the work, it is envisaged to study the CBM performance for reconstruction of the strange particles (such as neutral kaons and lambda hyperons) via their weak decays using the Kalman filter package.

PID-2022-0403: Simulation and design of wideband hybrids for capacitive loads

Project IDPID-2022-0403
FieldBeam Instrumentation
Eligible GroupBachelor students
Duration6 months

Abstract:

FAIR will host many circular synchrotrons and storage rings. The work-horse for most of these machines are the capacitive pick-up systems. These pick-ups provide turn-by-turn position information, particle phase advances and are extremely important for day to day operations. FAIR machine will cope with unprecedented large dynamic range in beam currents, and therefore a very flexible and robust front-end electronics is under development. One of the options in this regard is the usage of transformer based hybrids. The goal of this thesis will be to design and evaluate the hybrids in operation conditions. Further it will be matched it with the back-end electronics and data acquisition system. The student will get experience will real world electronics design concepts and a good design might even be tested with beam in SIS-18.

PID-2022-0402: OTR light output for hadron beams for profile measurements and design considerations for the optical beamline

Project IDPID-2022-0402
FieldBeam Instrumentation
Eligible groupMaster students
Duration6 months

Abstract:

Optical transition radiation is a well know phenomenon where light is emitted when a charged particle crosses the boundary of two materials with a different permittivity. Its usage is widespread in electron machines. Recently, GSI did some pioneering measurements with ion beams towards profile measurements. In this thesis, expected light with different energies, charge states, target materials will be calculated. Following that, appropriate optical beamline will be designed for obtaining maximum light from the OTR radiator.

Project IDPID-2021-0502
FieldAccelerator
Eligible GroupPostdoctoral
Duration24 months

Abstract:

The aim of the project is to characterise specific aspects of role-based access control, analyse the key requirements in close collaboration with the stakeholders in the controls department, suggest software and database solutions for integration, design, implement and test the solution in the Controls Integration system. The technical solution shall be validated in the Controls Integration (test) environment and at the existing GSI machines.
