i've been to his lab and seen everything up-close. I also saw it at maker
faire in 2008 or so.
My favorite experiment is one where he has two sodium-iodide
scintillators, each optically coupled to its own photomultiplier tube, and
a radioactive source.
The objects are placed source, detector, detector, such that one detector
(only the sodium iodide crystal, the rest is off to the side) is in
between the other detector and the radioactive source.
He sets up window comparators on both detectors, so they only trigger on
events which correspond to the energy of the radiation source, and sets up
a time-comparison between the two detectors. If detector A triggers
within a certain time of detector B it is called a coincidence.
Coincidences are mapped on the x-scale of a chart, where x=0 is when the
event from A and B are simultaneous. If they are not simultaneous, the
difference in time between the detections is where on X they land. The
vertical of the chart is a cumulative addup of how many times that has
happened in that x position.
You would think that a gamma event could only be detected by one detector
or the other, and be annihilated - and his chart would be white noise.
But you can see very clearly that there is a lot of detection of the same
event by the two detectors.
How is that possible? come see for yourself and try to figure it out.
