  • Looking further into nuclear build-up for energy variation:
    • Relative reduction becomes constant at beam energies above 200 MeV: "saturation".
    • RS suggests that nuclear interactions become important above 200 MeV: suggests to count numbers of all secondaries by species in the entrance region.
    • PA suggests using a liquid Hydrogen target to simplify the nuclear interactions.


  • Assembling photodiode circuit with Hamamatsu preamp.
  • Waiting on resistor value for preamp from Hamamatsu.

Suggestions needed for our Water Equivalent range telescope plastic scintillator detector.
