    The first of the Kamioka experiments was named KamiokaNDE for Kamioka Nucleon Decay was a large water Čerenkov detector designed to search for proton observe the decay of a particle with a lifetime as long as a proton an experiment must run for a long time and observe an enormous number of protons. This can be done most cost effectively if the target (the source of the. The muon polarimeter will count those electrons: any unbalance in the left-right or front-backward counting is associated with a non-null transverse or longitudinal polarization of the initial muon. The Photon Polarimeter. The photon polarimeter (the purple ring in the sketch of the detector) works on the same principles as the muon polarimeter.

    The Muon Veto for the XENON1T detector, consisting of a large SS tank that will be filled with ultrapure water, is based on the detection of the Cherenkov light emitted by particles travelling through the water. The light will be detected by 84 PMTs (8" in diameter).   Polarimeter Experiment penguinboy Loading Unsubscribe from penguinboy? POLARIMETER 1 (OPTICS LAB) IRAQ - Duration: physicslove1 , views.

    MARGARITA is a water Cherenkov stopped muon detector that features twin photomultiplier tubes and two small, slightly differing detector volumes. The two detector volumes are designed to exploit the difference between the lifetimes of positive and negative muons in . 1. Introduction. Cerenkov radiation is produced in a dielectric material when a charged particle passes through the medium with a velocity greater than the phase velocity of light in the same medium [].This type of radiation can be easily observed in water at nuclear facilities such as boiling-water reactors, pressurized-water reactors, and spent fuel storage pools [].Cited by:

The paper reports the results of measurements of the intensity of cosmic rays in the ocen at depths of up to 5 km using a detector registering individual muons from their Cerenkov radiation in natural water surrounding the detector.

Based on the experimental results, an expression is obtained which relates the intensity of a vertical flux of cosmic muons to the observation depth. The results. An active system that is able to tag muons and muon-induced backgrounds is critical for this goal. A water Cherenkov detector of ~ 10 m height and diameter has been therefore developed, equipped with 8 inch photomultipliers and cladded by a reflective foil.

We present the design and optimization study for this detector, which has been carried Cited by: An active system that is able to tag muons and muon-induced backgrounds is critical for this goal.

Experiments were performed using a water Cherenkov detector at the Tandar Laboratory. This book is a reference manual for researchers and. With this goal, an active system that is able to tag muons and their induced backgrounds is crucial. This active system will consist of a water Cherenkov detector realized with a water volume $\sim$10 m high and $\sim$10 m in diameter, equipped with photomultipliers of 8 inches diameter and a reflective by: vated instrumenting the water tank (WT) as an active muon-veto to detect the Cherenkov light that charged particles produce as they cross the water.

The aim is to identify events in which a muon directly crosses the WT, and also events in which a muon is outside but the particles constituting the electromagnetic or hadronic cascade enter the WT.

Cerenkov radiation from muons was detected, and a comparison of count rate with the expected muon flux indicates that the ice is very transparent, with an Cited by: Due to the low interaction cross section, a large-volume detector is needed to detect astrophysical neutrinos with adequate statistics.

This necessity inspired the construction of the first, natural water Cherenkov detector: Deep Underwater Muon and Neutrino Detector (DUMAND).Located off the shores of Hawaii, it used sea water as a medium to detect Cherenkov radiation from charged secondaries Author: Lu Lu, Tianlu Yuan.

As seen above, the Cherenkov detector records the passage of cosmic muons through the water detector. The muon is an unstable particle which naturally decays into an electron and a pair of neutrino, with an average life of about 2,2μs.

The complex includes the Cherenkov water calorimeter NEVOD with a volume of m 3 and the coordinate-tracking detector DECOR with a total area of 70 m 2. DECOR data are used to determine the local muon densities in the bundle events and their arrival directions, while the energy deposits are evaluated from the Cherenkov calorimeter : R.P.
