Investigations relevant to the CERN@school projects, both external research, and those carried out by member schools.
- Impact of Ventilation on Ambient Radiation - Investigations into the effect of ventilation on levels of background radiation. Ventilation acts as a proxy for the presence of radioactive radon gas, which can build up in sealed rooms overnight. Experiments in SLBS have suggested there is no difference.
- Effect of Non-Ionising EM Radiation on the Detector Chip - Investigations into the effects of visible and near-visible wavelength light on the detector chip. Important to decrease effect of sunlight while maximising chip sensitivity. Very much inconclusive and requiring further investigation.
