Presentation at the CROP Summer 2005 Workshop.

 

 

Berkley National labs offers the plans and some of the parts for constructing a cosmic ray telescope. Fr. McShane and several of his students built the cosmic ray telescope shown here during the 2004-2005. Students followed the plans to assembly two detector panels with photomultiplier tubes. These assemblies are wrapped in black plastic in the photo and are mounted about four inches apart inside the clear plastic case.

The students guided the schematic diagram and Fr. McShane also obtained the parts and assembled a coincidence curcuit that displays the coincidences occurring on the LED display inside the case. Two additional panel assemblies were constructed for presentations and various experiments with cosmic rays in the lab and in class.
