Transcript of Pr ducts panel

Slide 1

Pr ducts panelCOSMIX, a portable cosmic ray detector Designed and built by the Bordeaux-Gradignan IN2P3 lab (CENBG) 2 scintillator bars reused from Fermi-GLAST R&D, connected to photomultipliers

Custom-built electronics

GPS & pressure meter

LCD screen showing counters Data saved in ASCII format on a SD memory card

Cost ~1.5 k / briefcase 2 including scintillator bars [free for now as bars reused]

Weight < 3 kg total

Powered by USB cable, no tuning needed nor any training

Can be connected to a scope to see muon signals

One bar is movable and can be superimposed to the other one Study single (C1, C2) vs. coincidence rates (C1 C2)2


Scope signals left: a counter right: coincidence between the counters

Plane flights

In a flying-club plane (up to 1800 m) In a commercial flight Examples of measurements3

AltitudeCounter rateCounterratePressure3Outlook ~20 COSMIX briefcases to be produced this Summer 3 prototypes built last year and shown in15 high schools (1,000 students) The COSMIX detectors will circulate in high schools (quick rotation) and be used by labs for outreach and communication events: open days, public lectures, etc. Website foreseen to store COSMIX data of special interest Eiffel Tower, high mountain, underground laboratory (Modane), etc.

`Hand-made production at CENBG Once a year internship season & need to pass large orders to local companies Enough spare scintillators to build about twice more detectors Not aware of any similar detector portable and allowing to sense real particles

Anyone interested in knowing more about the COSMIX detector? Live demo during the break
