Superposition: physicists and artists in conversation

Brass, glass and mahogany

We talked more about contemporary particle physics, detector design and the various methods used to ‘see’ particles – scintillation, ionisation, Cherenkov radiation and magnetic fields. I had done a wee bit of homework before our meeting and found images of these amazing scintillating fibres, which sit nicely with the photos Ben posted for me of wavelength shifting fibres – oh to play with some of these!
