Physics for particle detectors and particle detectors for physics: Timing performance of semiconductor detectors with internal gain and constraints on high-scale interactions of the Higgs boson

Abstract:

Experimental particle physics is a science of many scales. A large number of physical processes spanning energies from meV to TeV must be understood for modern collider experiments to be designed, built, and conducted successfully. This thesis contributes to the understanding of phenomena across this entire dynamic range.

Low-energy physics governs the operation of particle detectors, limits their performance, and guides the development of novel instrumentation. To formalise these ...
