Technologies of fundamental physics

During the eighties our Group realized a new technique, digitizer tools based, to visualize the images collected by the streamer-chamber of PS179 experiment at C.E.R.N..
This technique let us increase the speed in analyzing photographic films and so in studying antitprotons annihilation events.

At the end of the eighties our Group looked after the realization of the gas flowing system for the detectors of PS201 Obelix experiment, as well as the systems for vacuum and for Target-gases control.

At the present, for ASACUSA experiment, our Group planned and is realizing a vertex detector based on scintillating fibers, that reconstructing the tracks of the pions emitted in annihilation events will let us study annihilation cross-sections of different target gases for very low energy antiprotons. To flow the target gas our Group planned and realized a differential pressure line that will allow us to range from normal pressure to UHV, optimizing target densities.
