  • SiPM Pocket Scintillation Detector

    SiPM Pocket Scintillation Detector

    This device uses a Broadcom AFBR-S4N66C013 SiPM and a 16×30 mm¬≤ NaI(Tl) scintillator to make an extremely portable and powerful handheld scintillation detector. The SiPM carrier board and the driver board are developed by NuclearPhoenix on GitHub. Huge thanks to him for his help and his projects that try to make SiPMs available for a…
