Laboratory for Detection of Particles and Radiation
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
