The “Kamiokanne” as high school experiment Summary The “Kamiokanne” is a high school or university lab experiment for the detection of cosmic rays via the cherenkov effect. The setup follows the conceptional design of the Kamiokande experiment, which was awarded the Nobel prize in physics. However, it does detect cosmic muons rather than neutrinos. The “Kamiokanne” can measure the rate, the angular distribution, and the lifetime of cosmic muons in a lab experiment. Amonst others, it is used in the Netzwerk Teilchenwelt project.
