Supplementary MaterialsAccurate determination of muon lifetimes

Muzamil Abbasi is a final year undergraduate at the Habib University, Karachi. Working with the Physlab team, Umar Hasan and Dr. Sabieh Anwar, he has optimized the existing experiment aimed at measuring muon lifetimes. He has noticed nonlinearities (integral and differential nonlinearities) in the operation of the multi-channel analyzer that is systematically affecting the lifetime measurements. A scheme was devised using a pulse and delay generator to characterize these nonlinearities and then deconvolving this response from the measurements. The result is a more accurate determination of the muon lifetime. Muzamil Abbasi continues to work on this project as part of his research dissertation.
