AGH University of Science and Technology has recently signed a cooperation agreement with Jagiellonian University concerning the construction, launch and operation of the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research. The agreement has been concluded within the framework of FEMTOFOZYKA National Consortium.

The Department of Metrology and Electronics of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering will design and supply FAIR with multichannel integrated circuits to be used for recording signals from silicon strip detectors

The value of the contract,  which has been concluded for the period of 2 years, amounts to 2.4m zlotys. The manager in charge of the assignment on the part of the AGH UST will be Krzysztof Kasiński, PhD, MTech, of the Department of Metrology and Electronics.

The European Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research was founded for the purpose of building a new accelerator centre for conducting research using antiprotons and ions. It is one of the world’s largest science and research developments, with participation of scientists from all over the world.
