Characterization of the new MCP-PMT as a timing detector for beta particles

Recently we received our new MCP-PMT of which I presented a first test in this post. Today I am posting the first serious characterization of the device. All the details can be found in this document which I embed below: As a summary, I measured a time resolution of about 22-24 ps for the MCP-PMT …

Robust statistics

Introduction One of the most common tasks when analyzing data from the lab is to estimate the mean and standard deviation of some set of samples, usually with a Gaussian distribution. This is very straightforward nowadays, we just ask to the computer to compute these quantities and that’s it. And when the samples come from …

The Chubut board

I designed a new “flavor” of the Santa Cruz board that is basically the same circuit but with a smaller layout, such that I can place more of them simultaneously in the climate chamber, and also thinking in an easier mounting in the TCT with cooling. In the first tests I made yesterday, the board …
