Demonstration of MiniPIX detector by Michael Campbell
Spokesman of Medipix collaboration in CERN, Michael Campbell, gave a demonstration of MiniPIX detector during the Particle Physics Conference in Venezia.
According to Mr. Campbell the MiniPIX detector can replace the Geiger counter especially as a teaching device. The chip is used in schools, teaching children about radiation in the environment.
Newly founded Institute for Research in Schools, has a number of projects using Timepix for teaching. They have a number of these detectors on a satellite that are giving data to the schools to analyse by the school kids.
