Skills to be acquired in this module
Understanding the evolution of a scienti c experiment from
scratch to conduction. Understanding the physics / capabilities of an instrument. Learning tools for the development of a scientific instrument with an engineering and science team.
 
Module contents
Relevant scienti c questions often require large scientific facilities like CERN or the ELT to conduct their experiment.
The evolution of a scienti c project from a question to a real experiment is a complex process between large teams of engineers and scientists.
In this course students will learn:
a. How to derive speci cation from a scienti c question
b. Translate these speci cations to engineering
c. Develop rst simulations of the experiment
d. Develop the physical design of an instrument including
d.1. Trade-o studies
d.2. Management tools for the communication
d.3. Engineering tools for the instrument
e. Create a model of the instrument
f. Conduct the experiment in the virtual environment
Example project(s) from astrophysics
