Hej! Big Data 2019 at Linnéuniversitetet is approaching. Invited speakers, Fast-Forward sessions and a cool tutorial in Open Science! Come and mingle with the Data Intensive Sciences and Applications (DISA) people! All the information about the event can be found… Read moreBig Data 2019 and Open Science tutorial
Hej! Our prototyping activities are going on 🙂 After a successful operation of the carbon fibre tanks, we are now completing the prototype setup with two brand-new water tanks made of steel. Here Michael, Mohan and Mark are in front… Read moreA new type of water tank!
Hej! We will provide ALTO simulations and real data for the Big Data Hackathon organized in the framework of DISA at Linnaeus University. This event supports open source and open science. Join us!
Hej! Finally, all our Phase-I ALTO detectors are taking data. The second muon detector still needs to be filled with additional scintillator liquid, and we will do this soon. The Phase-I of the ALTO prototype consists in the operation of… Read moreAll Phase-I ALTO detectors taking data!
We have almost completed the migration of our website on this new platform. In addition, now the astroparticle/gamma-ray group has new webpages with all our other research activities in gamma-ray astronomy: https://astrogamma.se/
Hej! We now have the possibility to send a live stream of the cosmic ray events detected by the ALTO prototype at Linnaeus University. Check it out on our website and have fun!
Hej! After additional testing needed to understand our new detector element, we finally got the first ALTO muon detector taking data properly with all the other detectors included in the prototype. Temperatures in Växjö have already reached -12 degrees and… Read moreFirst muon carpet taking data with all other detectors!
Hej! Today we received the first muon detector that we will fill with a liquid called “scintillator” next week. Next week we will also install the photomultiplier which will record the photons emitted by the passage of particles in the… Read moreFirst muon detector “carpet” installed!
Hej! Finally, the first muon detector is ready, and we will receive it in the following weeks. Here is a picture of the flat box, which is 10 cm high and 3 m in diameter, and which is quite a challenge to… Read moreFirst ALTO muon detector ready!
Hej! Here are some events seen in the prototype setup at Linnaeus University in Växjö. Thanks to Jean-Pierre we have a super event display! We are still waiting for the final scintillator detectors, and as you may see, one Cherenkov… Read moreSee some ALTO events in this video!
