Tests of a Prototype Multiplexed Fiber-Optic Ultra-fast FADC Data Acquisition System for the MAGIC Telescope

Abstract

Ground-based Atmospheric Air Cherenkov Telescopes (ACTs) are successfully used to observe very high energy (VHE) gamma rays from celestial objects. The light of the night sky (LONS) is a strong background for these telescopes. The gamma ray pulses being very short, an ultra-fast read-out of an ACT can minimize the influence of the LONS. This allows one to… (More)
