Manoj Jadhav

Postdoctoral Appointee

Manoj Jadhav is interested in the development and testing of the ultra-fast silicon detectors and the CMOS silicon detectors for particle identification and tracking. He is currently involved in the Electron-Ion Collider and AMEGO-X (AstroPix) projects.


Dr. Jadhav is a postdoctoral appointee working in the Medium Energy Group in the Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory. Dr. Jadhav joined Argonne in 2018 and he is involved in the development of Ultra-fast Silicon Detectors. Dr. Jadhav received his Ph.D. in 2018 from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Mumbai, India. During the Ph.D., Dr. Jadhav worked on the Development of silicon particle detectors and D0-meson production as a function of event spherocity in pp collisions with ALICE at the LHC”. Where he developed a silicon sensor from a pristine wafer and tested it at Inter-University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), New Delhi, with exposure to the alpha particle source Am241. Along with detector development, he studied the reconstruction of heavy-flavor mesons (D0) as a function of event multiplicity and event shapes in pp collisions at √s = 7 TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC. Event shape variables help isolate jetty-like (high pT jets) and isotropic events and describe the structure of hadronic events and their energy flow properties. 

Currently, Dr. Jadhav works on ultra-fast silicon detectors (UFSD) based on the Low-Gain Avalanche Diode (LGAD). The goal is to develop the LGAD sensors incorporating the readout electronics on the pixel itself using HV-CMOS technology. The R&D in LGADs is part of the imaging calorimeter for the TOPSiDE, a proposed detector for the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) at the BNL. He is involved in the test-beam integration for the LGAD sensors testing. Currently, he is working on the AC-LGAD sensors with multiple-channel read-out DAQ systems. Dr. Jadhav is also involved in the characterization and testing of the CMOS silicon sensors developed for the Astroparticle telescope, AMEGO-X, at NASA. These CMOS silicon pixels are referred to as AstroPix and read-out through FPGA programmed GECCO DAQ testing boards.
