Here, “fast” refers to nanoseconds, and “low-light” refers to a few to hundreds of photoelectrons. The goal is to give students hands-on experience with the single photo-resolving photomultiplier (siPM and PMT), plastic scintillator, light source, electronic, and data acquisition (DAQ) used in particle and nuclear physics experiments.
What do we have for the camp: Silicon-based photomultiplier (siPM; multiple types; power supply and circuit to work with); light source (LED; LED driver; and cosmic rays); plastic scintillator (various sizes); wavelength shifting fiber; NIM electronic module (amplifier, discriminator, coincidence, scaler, …) to manipulate the analog signals; oscilloscope; fast analog-to-digital converter (ADC); optical components (fiber splitter, diffuser..) and other additional components. Following are few snapshots.
