Abstract:
The Maple Leaf Cosmic Ray Detector is the effort of the University of Alberta High Altitude Balloon Program team (UA-HAB), as the first Canadian Institution participating in HASP following the mandate of the Canadian Space Agency to ‘build capacity in the science and technology space sector, in particular through promoting the use of accessible and cost effective suborbital platforms’. The Maple Leaf Cosmic Ray Detector is a simple low mass cosmic ray detector that aims to measure particles with energies greater than 200MeV, following the design made by University of Louisiana Lafayette in 2006. The detector will be constructed from sheets of metal and photo-emulsion paper with HR Fast Screens layered and bolted together. Emphasis of this project will be to explore film resolution to increase the particle detection, and improve the data analysis techniques used by the previous team.
