Description MSL thin silicon development work 
Organisation Micron Semiconductor
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Private 
PI Contribution Worked with MSL to obtain thin silicon detectors for generic R&D as a follow on/parallel line to the ATLAS detector development work.
Collaborator Contribution Partners worked on modifying their production process to adapt a product line for our requiremetns for a new R&D line in thin devices. This required an in-kind contribution from the partner company.
Impact work is ongoing.
