Hotel do Mar - Sesimbra

Hotel do Mar - Sesimbra

Rua General Humberto Delgado,10, 2970-628 Sesimbra, Portugal
The Lisbon mini-school on Particle and Astroparticle Physics provides under-graduated students with a comprehensive introduction to the field, covering both theoretical and experimental aspects.
This school will give insigth to recent discoveries and to open challenges and will stress the research opportunities in the field in Portugal.

The school is mainly aimed to third year under-graduated students who have completed the course in Quantum Mechanics I.

        Unveiling cosmic particles with muons: the cosmic connection 4h 30m
        Our cosmos is full of radiation. Its composition is made of massless particles (photons) and different mass particles such as protons, electrons, positrons and heavier nuclei. Their observation is a consequence of being accelerated with striking energies on the cosmos accelerator, at singular supernova regions.
        Muons are smoking guns of these primary cosmic particles. They are relatively short lived particles that are generated on interactions of primaries on the top of the atmosphere, ten kilometers above earth surface. Its detection upon earth is due to its high energy that allows its survival for kilometers as was explained by the Einstein relativity. On this hands-on project we are going to use a bi-scintilator telescope to detect muons and to measure its rate (number of muons per second). From that measurement and its normalization that requires a small Monte-Carlo program to calculate the telescope geometrical acceptance, we shall be able to estimate the muon vertical intensity and compare its value with literature.
