Muoni , Ancora !

Introduzione I muoni sono particelle interessanti. Da tutto lo spazio arrivano verso la terra i raggi cosmici che, appena entrano negli strati superiori dell’atmosfera e interagiscono con i nuclei delle molecole di gas, producono moltissimi muoni. I muoni, cugini pesanti dell’elettrone, sono delle particelle instabili che “vivono” circa 2,2 microsecondi. …

Muons, Again !

Introduction Muons are interesting particles. From all the space the cosmic rays reach the earth. As soon as they enter the upper layers of the atmosphere and interact with the nuclei of the gas molecules, they produce many muons. The muons, heavy cousins ​​of the electron, are unstable particles that …

Misura Decadimento Muone con PSoC

” … Il muone – il cugino dell’elettrone dalla vita breve – potrebbe essere la chiave per comprendere le relazioni tra le altre particelle fondamentali. Nel 1930, gli scienziati credevano di aver capito la materia. La materia era atomi; gli atomi erano protoni, neutroni ed elettroni; e non c’era altro. …

Muon Lifetime with PSoC

” … The muon—the short-lived cousin of the electron—could be the key to understanding relationships between other fundamental particles. And it holds a mystery all its own. In the 1930s, scientists thought they had matter figured out. Matter was atoms; atoms were protons, neutrons and electrons; and that was that. Then they discovered the …

Cosmic Ray Muons & Muon Lifetime

The aim of this project is to detect the muon decay events and to measure the muon mean lifetime. For this purpose we will use the scintillation detector described in the following post : Scintillation Detector for Cosmic Muons.
