MPPC chips & scintillator coatings

MPPC chips & scintillator coatings

A few images of the in progress testing work for the direct ion detection project.  The images show scintillator coatings, made using the laser dye Exalite 389, and a Hamamatsu MPPC chip to form a complete ion detection system.
