Muon experiments@UNLP

These pages compile information about several experiences in particle detectors made in the Electronics Lab of the Physics Department in La Plata University. Information is included about manufacturing of detectors, its characterization and mounting, as well as some basic physiscs experiments to demonstrate its behaviour. Needless to say that this site is under construction and it will remain this way for a long time. You can contact us at

Thin Gap Chambers

The study of TGC muon detectors was conducted in the context of CERNīs ATLAS experiment. The scintillator-based telescope was an important tool that aided in gas chambers characterization. More information on related work can be found in our TGC-UNLP blog (in spanish).
