Anti-Coincidence Detector Coating

When charged radiation interacts with the Anti-Coincidence Detector (ACD) in our radiation detector system, light is produced. This light is collected and analyzed to determine characteristics of the incident radiation. Since the light could possibly leave the detector system, the ACD is coated with a special paint to keep the light in, allowing for optimal efficiency. Here is Luis, an automotive & vehicle technology student, testing the opacity of the ACD using a laser.
