The detectors of the fbk clean room in the chinese space mission
With the Limadou project, Italy brings an instrument of its own aboard a Chinese mision for the first time. It is HEPD (High Energic Particle Detector), a detector developed to measure variations in the flow of particles that precipitate downwards due to perturbations generated by solar, seismic and anthropic phenomena. And the launch of CSES (China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite) also involves those who do research on the hills sorrounding Trento, but not only them; in fact for the Limadou detector, FBK has developed and manufactured, with its technology, almost 100-cm2 chips, a result that few in the world are able to achieve.
