SDW2022 Proceedings

The Scientific Detector Workshop 2022 (SDW2022) was be held from 4th September to 9th September, 2022, at the Telegrafenberg Campus of the Leibniz-Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam, Germany.

The 7th installment of a successful series of workshops brought together scientists and engineers who develop, produce, implement and operate the most advanced imaging sensors used in scientific instrumentation. The focus is given to the fields of astronomy and earth sciences.

The proceedings are peer-reviewed and published as a feature issue of the Astronomische Nachrichten / Astronomical Notes (AN)
