Modeling of gaseous quantum detectors

Units : Theoretical Nuclear Physics and Mathematical Physics | ULB186

Description :

Gaseous ionizing particle detectors (cloud chambers, track chambers ...) are modeled in an ab initio approach combining quantum
scattering theory and statistical physics. The goal is to address both the fundamental problems of quantum measurement (decoherence,
determinism, influence of the microscopic state of the measurement apparatus ...) and to participate in the optimization of new
active target type detectors. used in low energy nuclear physics.
