This is a set of two fully assembled and tested muon detectors. As supplied the detector will detect β, ϒ, and cosmic muons. To eliminate the random β and ϒ two detectors are required working in coincidence mode.
The detector is not fitted into an enclosure, these can be purchased separately from our website.
There are three printed circuit boards: SiPM, SD card reader and mother board. An Ardunio Nano is supplied as the Analogue to Digital converter and serves to drive the OLED display, save the counts to the SD card as a CSV file and communicate with its host via USB. The detector is powered via a USB-mini connector.
Cables are not included. The detector requires a USB cable (type-A to mini-USB)for power and data and a stereo cable (3.5mm to 3.5mm hack plug) for coincident operation.
There is extensive documentation; scientific and construction detail available as a download and a series of YouTube videos explaining the construction process in detail. These are available via the Cosmic Watch website http://www.cosmicwatch.lns.mit.edu/
For ongoing support there is a forum - https://groups.io/g/muondetector/messages where discussion, questions and ideas can be shared.
