Beam Instrumentation Group (BI)

The Beam Instrumentation Group is responsible for designing, building and maintaining the instruments that allow observation of the particle beams and the measurement of related parameters for all CERN accelerators and transfer lines.
It is also engaged in research and development to improve existing detection techniques and explore new avenues to allow further optimization of the current machines and to meet the challenges associated with future accelerators.
The range of activities undertaken by the Group include: accelerator physics, detector technology, custom built electronics, mechanical and vacuum engineering for detector housings and software engineering.
