INSTITUTE OF COSMOS SCIENCES

University of Barcelona

Technology Unit

The ICCUB Technology Unit has been created to enforce projects with an important technological component, either focused on science, research or technology demonstrators, among others. The Unit is built upon the know-how earned by its members during several years working on outstanding and groundbreaking international projects, such as LHCb, Gaia, Solar Orbiter or CTA.

The Unit consists on a set of facilities where about 25 ICCUB members, among engineers, researchers and PhD students, work together on the development of new instrumentation and data processing systems for astrophysical and particle physics projects (spacial missions, telescopes, particle detectors...), as well as their application to other fields such as medical imaging.
