Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Since their introduction in 1974, Time Projection Chambers have played a pivotal role in landmark experiments in both particle and nuclear physics. Despite the fact that TPCs were originally devised for collider geometry, they have eventually become a synonym for the 'perfect experiment' in which maximal information about the nature of a particle's interaction needs to be obtained. This inexhaustible drive towards perfection is recognizable in many modern implementations and keeps fueling the technology beyond its original boundaries 46 years after its invention, with no sign of fatigue.

So, we are happy to announce that selected papers from the topical workshop "New Horizons in Time Projection Chambers" https://indico.cern.ch/event/889369/page/19876-topical-workshop will be published in this Special Issue of Particles, an MDPI open-access journal. The papers submitted are expected to reflect original work or be a balanced review of some key TPC technological aspect. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by internationally recognized experts.

As Guest Editors, we would like to invite you to submit your unpublished and original research relevant to this topic for publication in this Special Issue of Particles. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for submissions from the workshop will be free.
