Detector Laboratory is a national permanent infrastructure specialized in the instrumentation of particle and nuclear physics. It is a joint laboratory between Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP) and the Department of Physics at the University of Helsinki, especially the Division of Particle and Astrophysics (PAP). The Laboratory provides premises, equipment, expertise and technical support for research projects on developing semiconductor, gas-filled and scintillator detector technologies.
The Laboratory participates in the instrumentation and analysis of CMS, TOTEM and MoEDAL experiments at CERN, and of NuSTAR experiment at FAIR. In addition, activities of radiation safety by the Finnish Radiation Safety Authority STUK, and activities of medical imaging funded by Academy of Finland are present in the Laboratory.
