We aim at making high technological developments commercially available to the public market, which originate from the university academic engagement in experimental research in physics. In particular, CDT was created as a Spin-Off from Physikalisches Institut Heidelberg, Germany. We are specialized in detector technologies for nuclear, particle physics and neutron scattering research and related applications. Here we aim at supplying complete solutions for customized needs starting from particle detector front-end systems over highly integrated readout electronics and software. Typically, we add our knowledge, our experience and practical experimentalists´ know-how to create tailored solutions to specific customers´ applications. We measure our success through the success of our customers.

CDT has evolved through developments in thermal and cold neutron detection, in particular supplying easily integrated and complete detector solutions, joining modern technologies from other fields of Physics and technology for innovation in this field. As a novel field of applications for detector technologies, CDT now expands into accelerator beam monitoring applications.
