Cosmic Hunter

Muons detections, flux estimation and shower detection

Cosmic Hunter is a new educational tool through which CAEN wants to inspire young students and guide them towards the analysis and comprehension of cosmic rays.
Muons detections, flux estimation, shower detection and more are allowed thanks to a flexible system geometry.

Overview

Cosmic rays are energetic, subatomic particles constantly bombard the Earth’s atmosphere from all directions. Nowadays, new technological solutions are investigated by scientists to improve their knowledge in this field.

Experiments

  • Cosmic Muons detection
  • Coincidence (single, double and triple)
  • Zenit angle dependance
  • Cosmic Shower Detection

When CAEN Technology meets young talents

At the 42nd international balloon festival in Château-d’Oex , Hans Peter Beck (University of Bern and Fribourg) ascended on January 25th with some of his students up to 4000m in a hot-air balloon, commemorating the historic flight of Albert Gockel from 1909 (with modern equipment using CAEN Cosmic Hunter), measuring cosmic rays.
