Particles from Space

Astroparticle physics, also called particle astrophysics, is a branch of particle physics that studies elementary particles of astronomical origin and their relation to astrophysics and cosmology.

It is a relatively new field of research emerging at the intersection of particle physics, astronomy, astrophysics, detector physics, relativity, solid state physics, and cosmology.
Partly motivated by the discovery of neutrino oscillation, the field has undergone rapid
development, both theoretically and experimentally, since the early 2000s.

Arduino Muon Detector- Silcon Photo Multipler (SiPM)
You want to build your own CosmicWatch detector? It's easy and inexpensive! Step-by-step instructions for the new version of the detector (v2) can be found here.
Check out our "how to" videos on YouTube.
Supplementary materials (including code for Arduino) can be found in GitHub repository.
If you already started building the detector, instructions for v1 are still available in How to buid it? section.
