We present details of the construction and performance of a set of photosensitive chambers intended to detect ultraviolet Cherenkov light in cosmic-ray shower experiments. The particularly simple design of these chambers allows mass production and outdoor operation. Detection efficiency and sensitivity to a few photoelectrons have been measured at the predicted level. Bench test results are shown and performances in true outdoor operation are presented.

Abstract

We present details of the construction and performance of a set of photosensitive chambers intended to detect ultraviolet Cherenkov light in cosmic-ray shower experiments. The particularly simple design of these chambers allows mass production and outdoor operation. Detection efficiency and sensitivity to a few photoelectrons have been measured at the predicted level. Bench test results are shown and performances in true outdoor operation are presented.
