The Detector Laboratory supports Finnish experimental research on detector development activities. It is a joint laboratory between Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP) and the Department of Physics of University of Helsinki. The Laboratory provides premises, equipment and extensive know-how for research projects developing gaseous or semiconductor radiation detectors for international particle and nuclear physics experiments.
Presently, the Laboratory hosts several active projects concentrating in the CMS and TOTEM experiments at CERN and the NUSTAR experiment at FAIR/GSI. In addition, the Laboratory offers support for projects of the Electronics Laboratory of the Department of Physics. Furthermore, according to available resources, the Laboratory also provides services for outside users.
