The Detector Systems Group (DSG) provides world class instrumentation and detector systems in support of the STFC programme. Sensors and instrumentation technologies are crucial to every field of science and are increasingly required by industry in application areas such as security, healthcare, the environment and clean energy.
The DSG operates a one stop shop for the design and manufacture of high quality bespoke instrumentation and detector systems, as well as supporting projects from proof-of-principle, feasibility demonstration to a fully engineered prototype. The group has all the key capabilities to follow each step of a project process from conception, through to installation and operational support, to successfully enable science or commercial activities. Key successes include detector systems for synchrotron radiation science principally at DLS and the ESRF.
The DSG has also provided and is currently engaged in detector systems for applied Nuclear Physics, the CLF, & ISIS. The DSG has many industrial partners and customers both on and off the Sci-Tech Daresbury Campus, and collaborates with many academic partners.
All projects undertaken by the group are managed within a quality management system that meets ISO 9001:2008 and is certified by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
Key areas of expertise within the group include Detector/Sensor Technologies; Software design/ programming; CAD Capabilities and Electronic Manufacturing/Rework.
