Study of CMS background conditions during LHC beam operation, when the luminosity increases to reach the factor 10 foreseen by LHC upgrade project HL-LHC. The research will be focalised on CMS muon chambers
Research activity on a new medical physics detector to measure the delivered dose by a radiotherapy accelerator. Study of models of hadronic interactions in Monte Carlo codes and comparison with experimental data.
The muon chambers of CMS installed in final configuration, require to understand their operation with the magnetic field presence or not, both with cosmic and data.

Tools and programs development to understand how the Monte Carlo codes deal with some physical quantities regarding the medical physics with low-energy accelerators and accuracy of experimental data reproduction. Development of a new radiation (X-ray photons of a few MeV) detector, used for radiotherapy. The detector is based on the measurement of Cerenkov radiation and allow to obtain a continuous map, in real time, of the dose delivered by the accelerator. The CMS (Compact Muon Solenoid) muon detector is collecting data. The research mainly relies on drift chambers (DT, Drift tubes) operation. In particular, activity on chambers control and functioning of the muon trigger electronics, the signal stability and the study of resolutions.
