The High-D Consortium is a BMBF-funded first large scale coordinated effort on detector development in High Energy Physics and the section Matter and Cosmos. (High-D: F&E für hochsegmentierte mehrdimensionale Detektoren für zukünftige Experimente)
Research on new generation high-precision detectors with unprecedented spatial, temporal, and energetic resolution, for applications at future accelerator-based experiments at both the Energy Frontier as well as the Intensity Frontier
10 universities + 4 research centers in Germany
Fundamental research on 5D detectors with extreme granularity and on novel reconstruction techniques. For more information about the projects within the consortium, have a look at these slides.
