We light proofed the basement today by putting cardboard and thick dark fabric over the window and putting electrical tape over all the little LED's on the appliances. Also we curtained off an area with 2 dark sheets to keep away the unwanted light from the laptop. Currently the dark count is at an average of around 10 photons per second. We also plan on conducting the experiment in a large light proof box.
