CTA is an initiative to build a next generation ground-based gamma-ray Cherenkov Telescope Array, which will provide the deepest ever insight into the non-thermal high-energy universe. It foresees a factor of 5-10 improvement in sensitivity in the current energy domain of about 100 GeV to some 10 TeV and an extension of the accessible energy range to well below 100 GeV and above 100 TeV.

Our Group

  Our group contributes with the development of an active mirror control system that will be crucial for an accurate positioning of the many mirror segments that constitute the primary mirror of the telescopes. Furthermore we contribute on the development of an FPGA based digital readout for photon detectors.
