Raman LIDAR Pathfinder (CTA)Gamma-ray Group
Built in Barcelona and installed at the CTA-North site inside the LST-1 construction area in mid-February 2021, the LIDAR will play a fundamental role in characterizing the atmospheric properties and calibrating the data acquired by the CTA telescopes.
Guiding, Focusing & Alignment Cameras for DESI (DESI)Observational Cosmology Group
The Guiding, Focusing and Alignment system (GFA) is made up of 10 cameras, each of them installed in one of the focal plane petals of the instrument which, and as its name indicates, are in charge of focusing, guiding and aligning the telescope so that the robotic positioners can collect the light from the galaxies under optimum conditions.
3D silicon pixel sensors (ATLAS)Collider Physics Group
IFAE in collaboration with CNM led the development of the ultra-radiation-hard 3D silicon pixel sensors for ATLAS. IFAE provided 3D sensors for the innermost pixel layer (IBL) and constructed the first stations for the ATLAS Forward Protons (AFP) tracking system.
