Final Readings

Yesterday we took the final readings. The dark count averaged around 25 photons per second. The raw data will be posted as soon as we can. We started with 12 different setups and decided on 3 trails each, we estimated it would take us 2 hours for the 36 tests. It ended up being a 3 hour, 39 test ordeal in total darkness! I mentioned earlier about the florescent glow even after the lights were off, because of this we couldn't turn on the lights, so we used flashlights.

More coming soon
-Raw Data
-Charts
-Pictures (if they turn out)
-And more
