At modern particle accelerators, synchrotron light sources, and free-electron lasers (such as FAIR, LHC, ESRF, and the XFELs at DESY, respectively) both the detector instrumentation for the beam diagnosis and control and that for physics experiments has to be capable of coping with particle beams of unprecedentedly high intensities. Our joint research activities are focused on the development and characterization of novel artificial diamond detectors for the use for particle and photon detection in extreme radiation and temperature conditions. The actual work package ADAMAS (Advanced Diamond Assemblies) is the continuation of the previous Hadron Physics projects NoRHDia (Novel Radiation Hard Diamond Detectors) and CARAT (Advanced Diamond Detectors).


The HadronPhysics3 project is supported by the European Union
under the 7th Framework Capacities Programme in the area of Research Infrastructures (RI).
