A Mobile Detector for Muon Measurements Based on Two Different Techniques
Precise measurements of the muon flux are important for different practical applications, both in environmental studies and for the estimation of the water equivalent depths of underground sites. A
Muon flux measurement at China Jinping Underground Laboratory
China Jinping Underground Laboratory (CJPL) is ideal for studying solar, geo-, and supernova neutrinos. A precise measurement of the cosmic-ray background is essential in proceeding with R&D research
Measurement of cosmic ray flux in the China JinPing underground laboratory
The China JinPing underground Laboratory (CJPL) is the deepest underground laboratory running in the world at present. In such a deep underground laboratory, the cosmic ray flux is a very important
The EXO-200 detector, part I: detector design and construction
EXO-200 is an experiment designed to search for double beta decay of 136Xe with a single-phase, liquid xenon detector. It uses an active mass of 110 kg of xenon enriched to 80.6% in the isotope 136
Measurements and Simulation of background radiation for rare event search experiments at an underground laboratory
Experimental measurements and simulation of various radiation backgrounds at a new underground site have been presented. The experimental cosmic muon flux, measured at this site with the help of a

TLDR
An analysis of systematic uncertainties introduced by the interaction models in the atmosphere and the underground propagation of muons is presented and a comparison of results with published data is also presented.
Thesis
TLDR
This review is the report of a single experimental protocol on the nature, structure and mechanical strength of 136 bone samples from the vertebral body of 9 subjects, which combined mechanical testing with density measurements, a study of some microarchitectural parameters and a biochemical analysis of bone collagen.
Differential muon intensity versus muon momentum.The spectrum is an empirical fit of the momentum distribution of vertical muons at sea level. The spectrum has a flat maximum at about 0
