A Sonic Time Projection Chamger: Sonified Particle Detection at CERN
MetadataShow full item record
In a short-term research project at CERN, an auditory display of elementary particle tracks has been developed. Data stems from simulations of the Time Projection Chamber (TPC) in ALICE experiment. Particle detection there is based on pattern recognition algorithms, but is still today double checked with visualization tools. The sonification works with cluster data of the TPC and was designed in analogy to the physics behind the measurement device. Thus it is possible to listen directly to the otherwise silent detector.
