Title: 3D diamond sensors

Abstract: Diamond is a promising material with remarkable mechanical and electronic properties to provide the basis for radiation resistant particle detectors for high energy particle physics (HEP). In the presentation the current state of diamond detectors in particle physics will be discussed, focussing on recent developments of 3D diamond detectors and test-beam results with prototype pixel devices.

Short CV: Dr. Alexander Oh is a Reader at the University of Manchester. He obtained his PhD (1999) at the University of Hamburg with a study on CVD Diamond Detectors for high-energy particle physics experiments. He went to CERN, Geneva, as Research Fellow (2000), and then Research Staff  (2002) working on experimental particle physics, data acquisition systems, and detector technology for the Large Hadron Collider experiments ATLAS and CMS. He then joined the University of Manchester as Royal Society Research Fellow (2009) with a research program to developed 3D diamond detectors and to explore di-boson production processes with the ATLAS experiment.
