WP 6: Technical Design

Work package led by INFN


WP6 - Technical Design [led by INFN]- has the mandate to provide the ET-PP project management with a refined scientific case, the Technical Design Report (TDR) of the RI hosting the ET interferometers, and the TDR of the set of detectors (interferometers) and facilities (vacuum and cryogenic apparatuses and plants) composing ET.

Furthermore WP6 has the duty to elaborate a data management plan (DMP) and a Data Access Policy in synergy with WP8 (see below) and WP2. The activities in WP6 take place inside the ET Collaboration and will take full advantage of the existing technical and scientific boards inside the experiment.

The chairs of the ET Steering Committee: H. Lück (Hanover) and M. Punturo (INFN) act, together with P. Chiggiato (CERN), as co-coordinators of WP6. P. Chiggiato coordinates the R&D and technical design of the ET pipe-arm vacuum system.
