General information

Name of the project:  Microelectronics for large-scale physical experiments

Goals and objectives

Research directions: Information technologies and computational systems

Project objective: Developing a laboratory for designing reading electronics for multi-channel detectors of large experiments in accelerators of such centers as CERN (Switzerland), FAIR (Germany), JINR (Russia)

The practical value of the study

Scientific results:

The principal scientific results are related to the development of specialized  integrated circuits and their implementation into equipment of various physical experiments both in Russia and abroad. Among the main areas of interest of the Laboratory are the development of new efficient methods of detector (pulse analog) signal processing, including their fast digitalization and processing, primarily in the digital domain.

At our Laboratory we have developed more than a dozen low-power mixed (analog and digital) integrated circuits, in which radiation resistance is achieved by developing specialized  methods and roadmaps of designing state-of-the-art integrated circuits using computer-aided design (CAD) systems. 

Implemented results of research:

New methods and tools have been developed for designing specialized (custom) integrated circuits with the use of CADs developed by leading global vendors. We have completed a whole range of promising projects devoted to developing, manufacturing at state-of-the-art semiconductor factories and studying integrated circuits for a number of national and international accelerator experiments. 

Education and career development:

We have created a new lecture course on automation of integrated circuit design. We compiled a number of methodological aids (laboratory case studies), which we published at the Laboratory’s website (https://asic.mephi.ru).

The Laboratory organizes regular international and all-Russian research and methodology-related events (schools, seminars, training sessions) devoted to tools for automated design of integrated circuit for equipment used in physical experiments. Eight events have been organized, attracting 100–250 participants. 

Organizational and structural changes:

We have created a powerful computational cluster at the Laboratory that allows us to work, including remotely,  with microelectronics CADs made by world’s leading vendors. On the basis of this cluster we created a center for the collective use of equipment. 


The Laboratory has been participating in international collaborations (performing joint research):

  1. The СВМ experiment at the FAIR accelerator complex (Germany) http://www-cbm.gsi.de/cbmcdb/reportgen.cgi?report=clist-html
  2. The MPD experiment, at the NICA nuclotron (Russia) http://mpd.jinr.ru/experiment/organization/institutions/
  3. The BM@N experiment at the NICA nucleotron (Russia) https://bmn.jinr.ru/member-list/
  4. The sPHENIX experiment at the RHIC collider (BNL), (USA) https://www.sphenix.bnl.gov/pnb/client/
  5. The SHIP experiment at CERN (Switzerland) https://ship.web.cern.ch/ship/Constitution/SHiP_Authorlist_sept2017.pdf
