Detección de partículas a nivel de educación básica. Usando hardware y software libre.

P. Patiño Gallego, J. Padoan, R. Benavides, A. Tapia, D. Martinez Caicedo


En el presente artículo se demuestre la factibilidad de enseñar en instituciones de educación media,
los principios básicos de la física experimental de altas tecnologías de equipos de bajo costo. Se
enfatiza en el uso de hardware y software libre, para el estudio de diferentes tipos de radiación. Se
construye una caja oscura para estudiar la respuesta de una foto multiplicador de silicio a un pulso
de luz


Enseñanza, partículas, altas energías, foto-detectores,
