Detector Laboratory is an infrastructure supporting Finnish experimental research on detector development activities. It is a joint laboratory between Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP) and the Department of Physics of University of Helsinki. The Laboratory provides premises, equipment and know-how for research projects developing gaseous or semiconductor radiation detectors for international particle and nuclear physics experiments.
Presently, the Laboratory hosts several active projects concentrating in the instrumentation of CMS, ALICE and TOTEM experiments at CERN and NuSTAR experiment at GSI/FAIR. In addition, the Laboratory supports the projects of the Department of Physics. Furthermore, the Laboratory is active in education and outreach.
