Umut Kose and his team from the Neutrino Platform have been residents at IdeaSquare since 2014. They use the light room, dark room and prototyping facilities to further their goals of developing photon detection.
This phase of the Neutrino Platform R&D study focuses on photon detection systems to detect liquid argon scintillation light. Overall during this long R&D program, photon detection efficiency of SiPMs were measured by use of a monochromatic light source in the Dark room (designed and prepared by Umut in 2014 to test and calibrate 400 ICARUS Photo Multipliers),
At any time, one to three members of the Neutrino Platform can be found at IdeaSquare working from their desks in the clean room. As long-term residents of the space, they constitute part of the memory and history of ID2 and are always available to share their expertise in many fields over a coffee. Furthermore, Umut is the point of reference for any use of the light and dark rooms at IdeaSquare. Get in touch with him for any enquiries and to discuss your needs.
