A Czech company JABLOTRON ALARMS offers an interesting solution. Thanks to the cooperation with respected institutes such as CERN or IEAP CTU in Prague, a unique educational tool has been created. Digital particle camera MX-10 allows visualization of experiments on your computer screen in real-time.
Easy installation and intuitive control
Particle camera is controlled by specially developed Pixelman software that was created by a group of physicists from IEAP CTU in Prague. You can easily set up necessary measurement specifications for example the time of exposure or a type of particle analysis. The user can also choose the color spectrum of display, zoom in or out or watch the histograms of energy during the measurement. The program offers a lot of interesting functions and modules, which are described in detail in the Help section.
Modern technology from CERN to schools
The main element of the MX-10 particle detector is a silicon chip Medipix/Timepix, which was developed by a group of institutes called Medipix2 Collaboration based at CERN (Geneva). The chip is composed of more than 65 thousand individual detectors which are able to capture and record the hitting particles alpha, beta and gamma or particles from space (e.g. muons). Thanks to the long-term cooperation in the field of science and research the JABLOTRON Company acquired the opportunity to use this unique chip for the creation of an affordable detector with the primary use for educational purposes. We offer a state-of-the-art technology for high schools and universities that normally exceeds the financial limits of these schools.
Advanced experiments with MX-10 Edukit set
To take full advantage of the capabilities and possibilities of particle detectors MX-10 we have prepared a supplemental educational Edukit set. It offers some interesting tools for easier work with the camera and an Experiments guide with many interesting experiments for your particle physics lessons. There are a lot of handy components such as the School Radiation Source (SRS) ALPHA, adjustable experimental positioner, sample of uranium glass, tungsten electrode and shield samples. Everything is stored securely in a robust case together with MX-10 camera.
