Irfu develops detection, acquisition and data processing systems for many types of physics experiments:
- for space projects: from the design and manufacture of sensors of all wavelength types to data processing from the satellite to the distribution of data to ground processing centres.
- for ground-based telescopes: from mirror and camera design to integration and laboratory testing
- for detectors of all sizes working with particle accelerators
- for sensors buried underground, under the sea or near nuclear reactors
The teams implement all the skills covering the complete measurement and analysis chain:
detection physics, microelectronics, digital electronics and real-time processing, embedded software, visualization and statistical data analysis software.
