Welcome to EUDET-type beam telescopes

Mimosa pixel telescopes originated from a EUDET project before 2010. The telescope was established to enhance the available test-beam infrastructure, which is necessary for detectors research and development in particle physics. EUDET-type telescopes provide a high-precision beam tracking (~ 2 $\mu$m) and a sufficient event rate (at the DESY testbeam ~ 2 kHz rate) and an easy integration capability of a Device Under Test (DUT). Operated by the EUDAQ framework (generic DAQ framework) and analysed with EUTelescope (generic pixel telescope data analysis framework), EUDET-type telescopes offer the whole infrastructure for detector development from measurements till results.

EUDET-type telescopes at DESY

Driven by the community and the successive European-funded projects AIDA and now AIDA2020, the telescope's hardware components and software frameworks are still developing. Due to the success in the last years, today, there is a whole family of EUDET-type telescopes:

Name Est. Site Comment
AIDA 2009/10 H6B, North hall (SPS), CERN, Switzerland/France the updated original EUDET telescope
ANEMOME 2011 Bonn, Germany "A Nice Eudet Mimosa bONn tElescope"
ACONITE 2012 H6A, North hall (SPS), CERN, Switzerland/France "ATLAS Copy Of National Instrument TElescope"
DATURA 2012 TB21, DESY, Germany "DESY Advanced Telescope Using Readout Acceleration"
CALADIUM 2013 ESA, SLAC, USA "The Carleton EUDET Telescope" Ottawa, Canada
DURANTA 2015 TB22, DESY, Germany the second telescope at DESY
AZALEA 2016 T10, PS, CERN, Switzerland/France "Aida2020 Zero-suppresed Acquisiton Located at the East Area"
Besides a documentation on the hardware, this wiki should help users to do measurements using EUDET-type telescopes: It is intended to provide all necessary information to get started (user manual including the DUT integration) and to provide help in case of known problems. The information is mainly related to the DATURA and DURANTA telescope which is operated at DESY.
