# CERN Accelerating science

The theses collection aims to cover as well as possible all theses in particle physics and its related fields.
The collection starts with the thesis of Feynman, defended in 1942, and covers now alltogether more than 3000 theses. Most of the documents are held as hard copies, theses from later years are available electronically. (Note also that many theses are not physically held by the CERN Library.)

 Vol. 42 - Measurement based characterisation and modeling of micropixel avalanche photodiodes / Rychter, Andrzej (Warsaw University of Technology) ; Marzec, Janusz (dir.) (Institute of Radioelectronics and Multimedia, WUT) This dissertation contains a detailed research of new types of Silicon Photomultipliers which have been developed at the beginning of this century. The author was responsible for measuring new types of silicon photomultipliers (SiPM) which were planned to be used as photosensors in the new calorimeter—ECAL0 in COMPASS experiment in CERN.

 Vol. 41 - Dependable control and measurement systems modeling for unmanned spacecraft / Graczyk, Rafał (Warsaw University of Technology) ; Szadkowski, Zbigniew (dir.) (Łodź University) ; Adamski, Tomasz (dir.) (Warsaw University of Technology) Reliability and processing performance modeling is an important issue for aerospace and space equipment designers. From system level perspective, one has to choose from multitude of possible architectures, redundancy levels, component combinations in a way to meet desired properties and dependability and finally fit within required cost and time budgets. Modeling of such systems is getting harder as its levels of complexity grow together with demand for more functional and flexible, yet more available systems that govern more and more crucial parts of our civilization's infrastructure (aerospace transport systems, telecommunications, exploration probes).

(University of Sannio) ; Bajko, Marta (dir.) (CERN) In the framework of the Luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider (HL - LHC), a remarkable R&D; effort is now ongoing at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in order to develop a new generation of accelerator magnets and superconducting power transmission lines. The magnet technology will be based on Nb3Sn enabling to operate in the 11 - 13 T range.
