Search for Magnetic Monopoles: from the Large Hadron Collider to Space
Student can get involved in the following aspects of the project: 1. Development of novel radiation detectors optimized for the magnetic monopole searches. The detectors are to be deployed at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, and in space using CubeSat satellites. Experience with electronics (charge-sensitive amplifiers, impedance matching) and/or micro-fabrication techniques (physical vapor deposition, photolithography) is a plus. 2. Simulation of the galactic and solar magnetic fields to study propagation and detection of cosmological and astrophysical sources of magnetic monopoles....
