Abstract

The CWU physics department is implementing a mercury Hanle effect experiment. A Hanle effect apparatus uses the varying spatial dependence of photons emitted from atoms as a function of magnetic field strength. This project characterized the photomultiplier tube (PMT) that will detect the UV photons in this apparatus. Characteristics of the response of the PMT were measured using a mercury lamp, NIM electronics, optical hardware and components, and an oscilloscope. The project was unavoidably interrupted in progress. Preliminary results and a plan for completing the project will be presented.
