Cosmic Ray Detectors

The cosmic ray detector documentation is listed here.

We have three cosmic ray detectors. The first detector was assembled and tested by Wayne State students and staff. The testing began by plateauing the individual detectors. After finding and fixing a couple of problems with the equipment, we moved on to scanning the threshold settings.
