Title: The CosmicWatch project

Abstract: CosmichWatch is a simple, physics-motivated machine- and electronics-shop project for university students and schools. Our detector is a self-contained apparatus that employs a plastic scintillator as a detection medium and a silicon photomultiplier for light collection. The detector can be battery powered and used in conjunction with the provided software to make interesting physics measurements.

Venue: Room 22, 9:00 A.M.
