DAQ system for the Victor Hugo Ponce telescope on the lab bench

The laboratory is a joint effort from the Particles and Field group and the High Energy Technology and Research division.


Among the many projects developed in the lab, the main ones are:

  • LAGO, the Large Aperture GRB Observatory, for which a Nexys2-based DAQ board was designed
  • ASCII, an extension to the Pierre Auger Observatory based on scintillator detectors
  • FOG, a satellite-borne fluorescence telescope to study the atmosphere from a GEO position
  • Telescopio Victor Hugo Ponce, a prototype for GHz observation of Cosmic Rays


the lab was inaugurated on July 14, 2010.
