During my fourth week here, the first task in my first project was to make five circuit breakers for five MCP power supplies. During the sixth week, the second task was to assemble the connection and panels of five MCP power supplies boxes, since the power supplies only arrived on Friday of the fifth week.
For my project, I was assigned to characterise Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM), more specifically the Hamamatsu S13360-1350CS. This is the SiPM being used in the (Cosmic Ray Tagger) system that is built at CERN for the ICARUS experiment.
Basically, my assignment at CERN was divided into two sections. Determination of time differences between two hits in the same fiber and determination of a non-biased estimator for the efficiency of FACT fibers.
