Abstract

The Detector Modelling (DeMo) workshops aim to bring together a community of scientists and engineers who are interested in modelling detector effects and simulating detectors for astronomy. The first such workshop was held online over three afternoons from 14 to 16 June 2021. The three afternoons were organised around blocks of contributed talks from the community covering a wide range of detector topics such as detector effects like persistence and radiation damage, instru- ments covering a wide range of astronomical wavelengths from X-ray to the optical and infrared, and detectors used in other fields like particle physics. In addition to the scientific programme, the workshop featured a tutorial series on how to use the Pyxel detector simulation framework and how to contribute to Pyxel.
