A modern, digital and flexible platform developed by CAEN for teaching the fundamentals of Statistics & Nuclear and Modern Physics.

  • Built for educational purposes, easy to assemble and configure

  • Dozens of well documented experiments available, ready to be made with CAEN Kits

  • Manage 4 educational kits with one free software platform, more analysis tools are implemented in the software itself

Education Range
High Energy Physics Education Kit

Overview:

Inspire your students and guide them towards the analysis and comprehension of different physics phenomena with a series of experiments based on state-of-the art technologies, instruments and methods.

CAEN brings the experience acquired in more than 40 years of collaboration with the High Energy & Nuclear Physics community into the University educational laboratories. Thanks to the most advanced instrumentation developed by CAEN for the major experiments worldwide, together with the University teaching experience at the University of Insubria, a series of experiments covering several applications has been carried out and are presented in detailed Educational Notes.

This page is dedicated to a short description of the advanced instrumentations developed by CAEN and used to perform the experiments proposed.

The devices are put together to form educational kits, suitable to a specified application in Nuclear and Modern Physics fields. Moreover three educational kits, “Educational Gamma Kit“, “Educational Beta Kit” and “Educational Photon Kit“, are included in a “Educational Kit – Premium Version” that allows to perform almost entirely all the experiments.

The “Emulation Kit” allows to perform a series of lab experiments related to gamma spectroscopy with no radioactive source and detector, but simulating the signals produced by interaction of particle with the detecting unit.

The “EasyPET” is a user friendly and portable PET system that allows to perform nuclear imaging experiments. Moreover, the “EasyPET kit” also includes an MCA allowing gamma spectroscopy studies as well.

To increase the familiarity with the Environmental Radioactivity, CAEN designed two solutions to experience indoor and outdoor these phenomena, “Environmental Kit” and “GammaEDU” respectively.

“Cosmic Hunter” is the new educational tool developed to inspire young students and guide them towards the analysis and comprehension of cosmic rays.
