CIVIDEC Instrumentation is cooperating with the most renowned research facilities and universities around the globe. We are supporting young scientists and their projects.
EC projects
We are happy to announce our participation in the AVA project - a Marie Curie programm funded by the EC. The AVA project aims at enabling new antimatter experiments, probing the fundamental laws of nature. CIVIDEC will open one PhD position within this project. Send your application to until January 31st 2017. For more information please go to
PhD Sponsoring
CIVIDEC is sponsoring the PhD thesis of Pavel Kavrigin at the Vienna University of Technology. Pavel is investigating the properties of diamond detectors for neutron and photon detection.
CIVIDEC was sponsoring the doctoral thesis of Matevz Cerv, who did his scientific experiments at CERN. Matevz successfully defended his PhD in December '16 and is now waiting for his graduation at TU Wien. We are congratulating to this superb work, which has solved the challenge of real-time particle identification with diamond detectors.
Our Diamond Beam Loss Monitors are in operation at the LHC. We are measuring LHC beam losses of 7 TeV protons in real-time with 1 ns time resolution and 25 ns bunch-by-bunch diagnostics.
Tests at the EC/JRC/IRMM (Geel, Belgium) proved the excellence of our Diamond Neutron Monitor: rates of 1 MHz, energy resolution <50 keV, real-time analysis with our ROSY Readout System.
Tests at the Diamond Light Source (Oxford, UK) proved the excellent performance of our Diamond XBPM. For beams of 10 um diameter, a position resolution of ±2 nm was achieved.
EC Projects
We are an associate partner in the EC-funded STREAM project "Smart Sensor Technologies and Training for Radiation Enhanced Applications and Measurements", Horizon 2020 – the Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014-2020)”, under Grant Agreement Number 675587.
