Welcome to the Center for Detectors. CfD designs, develops, and implements new advanced sensor technologies through collaboration with academic researchers, industry engineers, government scientists, and university/college students. The CfD operates four laboratories and has approximately a dozen funded projects to advance detectors in a broad array of applications, e.g. astrophysics, biomedical imaging, Earth system science, and inter-planetary travel. Our observational astrophysics programs include studies of massive stars, massive star clusters, the Galactic center, the interstellar medium, the history of structure formation in the Universe, and cosmology.

Student involvement is central to all CfD projects. To obtain a PhD degree with us, apply to Astrophysical Sciences and Technology, Microsystems Engineering, or Imaging Science. To obtain an MS degree with us, contact the CfD Director.
