    • DRIFT-III: Engineering a Prototype Dark Matter Detector 

      Fox, Jennifer (2010-01-01)
      DRIFT (Directional Recoil Identification From Tracks) is a dark matter collaboration that uses Multiwire Proportional Counters (MWPCs) to detect minute changes in current due to subatomic events. The goal of this collaboration ...
    • DRIFT-III: Engineering a Prototype Dark Matter Detector 

      Fox, Jennifer (2010-01-01)
      For a large part of the summer, I identified and classified alpha particles from data obtained by the DRIFT (Directional Recoil Identification From Tracks) dark matter detector. The three main types of alphas are cataloged ...
    • Quality Control in Engineering DRIFT IIe Detectors, Pt 1 

      Fox, Jennifer (2011-01-01)
      This talk will summarize the methods of testing and quality control that DRIFT IIe dark matter detectors underwent through the construction process. It will focus on the first series of steps to construct a detector; placing ...
    • The Direction of my Research with Dark Matter 

      Fox, Jennifer (2009-01-01)
      For the majority of my summer research project, I used a mini, original model of the DRIFT (Directional Recoil Identification From Tracks) detector to measure the diffusion of ions in space. To do this, I scanned a UV light ...
