Synopsis:

Abstract:

The goal of the lecture is to present knowledge of modern detector systems. We will concentrate on the aspects of construction and usage for charged-particle tracking, momentum and energy measurement as well as particle identification via various methods from time-of-flight to transition radiation. The lecture will cover also the topic of signal shaping and processing, digitalization, data acquisition and further data processing at the modern collider experiments.

Requirements:
