The 2017 High Energy Physics Prize awarded to Erik H.M Heijne, Robert Klanner and Gerhard Lutz

The 2017 High Energy Physics Prize was awarded to Erik H.M Heijne, Robert Klanner and Gerhard Lutz for their pioneering contributions to the development of microstrip detectors that revolutionised high-precision tracking and vertexing in high energy physics experiments. Erik initiated hybrid pixel detector developmet at CERN and was a founding member of the first Medipix Collaboration. This is a video of Erik's acceptance speech after receiving the prestigous prize.Read more

Medipix: From particles to patients

In the 1990s, researchers on the Large Hadron Collider were assembling the last pieces of detector electronics, designed to capture high-resolution images of particle collisions quickly and with no background noise.  Read more
