    • Applications of Scintillation Counters in Cosmic Ray Detection Leila Jewell NSF REU program Advisor: Dr. Corbin Covault, Physicist: Katarzyna Oldak Case Western Reserve University, Dept. of Physics
    • Overview
      • Introduction: Cosmic Rays
      • Background: Detector
      • Methods: Muon Telescope
      • Results
      • Conclusions
    • Cosmic Rays
      • Charged particles, energies 10 12 - 10 19 eV
      • Extensive air shower
        • Cherenkov radiation
        • Secondary particles

    • Cherenkov Radiation Detector Coincidence Unit Photomultiplier tube (PMT) with optical concentrator Scintillation counter, protected by a crab box
    • Muon Telescope
      • Study muons in specific area
      • Set-up
      • 2 “hockey-puck” scintillation counters
      • Coincidence unit
    • Detecting Muons?
    • Testing the Panels
    • Testing the Panels
    • Conclusions
      • Accurate method for muon detection
      • Need new scintillator
