Abstract
Muons found in secondary cosmic rays are elementary particles created by high energy collisions of extra-terrestrial particles with the earth’s upper atmosphere. The focus of this thesis is to analyse test data from two pairs of prototype detector boards, which detect such muons. This allows characterization of the performance of the system under various operating conditions, and to determine the optimum design for citizen science cosmic ray studies so as to better understand the muon detector and improve the performance thereby enhancing detection. The results are obtained by running the PIN-diode detectors together with a high-efficiency scintillator counter that serves as a reference.
