Educational kits

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

CAEN realized different modular Educational Kits. The set-up are mostly based on Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) state of-the-art sensor of light with single-photon sensitivity and unprecedented photon number capability. The goal is to inspire 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.

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 the “Educational Kit – Premium Version” that allows the user to perform almost entirely the Handbook 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 the interaction of a particle with the detecting unit.
The “EasyPET” is the only not modular system. It is a user friendly and portable PET system that allows the user to perform nuclear imaging experiments.
