Joint Instrumentation Seminar

A Joint Instrumentation Seminar of the Particle Physics and Photon Science communities at DESY, Hamburg University and XFEL

organized by Katja Krueger (DESY), Georg Steinbrueck (Uni-HH), Ulrich Trunk (DESY).
An initiative of Heinz Graafsma (DESY & XFEL), Robert Klanner (Uni-HH), and Joachim Mnich (DESY)

The aim of the series is to forge closer connections between the photon science and particle physics fields, and to get updated on new developments in specific aspects of instrumentation development.

Due to the recent development of the COVID-19 pandemic, the plan to restart the seminar in a presence format had to be abandoned. Thus the seminar will be held in an online-only format on a monthly basis as long as SARS-CoV-2 related restrictions are in place.

Otherwise time and day of the seminar remain unchanged:

First Friday of each Month, starting at 14:00.

The seminar is transmitted via Zoom, the meeting ID is 926 5258 5536 and you can join by opening in your browser.
