CosmicWatch muon detector – Building a Cosmic Ray Detector
CosmicWatch is a project from MIT in the US and Poland’s National Center for Nuclear Research, that enables anyone with basic electronic skills to build a low-cost desktop detector for the muon particles which are created when cosmic rays collide with the earth’s atmosphere.
In this series of posts, we’ll take a look at constructing the CosmicWatch muon detector and where necessary, modifying the design very slightly to make use of more widely available parts.
The project is published in three parts as linked below:
