DTP(Detector Technology Project)

Development of the high performance detectors are indespensable. KEK Detector Technology Project(DTP) ia aiming to improve such a technology as a crucial key of success of researches.

Purpose and Vision

High-performance detectors are a key to cutting-edge nuclear and particle physics research, as detector capability often determines the success of a project. Thus, KEK places great importance on detector technology developments.

These detector and sensor technologies are applicable beyond the realm of nuclear and particle physics. Applications include materials science and observational astrophysics, non-destructive analysis for use on construction sites and in security checks, and nuclear scanning techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET). The Detector Technology Project (DTP) at KEK also develops new applications for detector technologies.
