CREDO Detector

May. 17th, 2018 - May. 17th, 2018










IEAP CTU is a member of the Cosmic-Ray Extremely Distributed Observatory (CREDO) project. This is a scientific project launched at the end of August 2016 by Polish scientists from the Institute of Nuclear Physics PAS in Krakow. Its goal is to detect cosmic rays on a large area, using the general public who can engage in research with their smart mobile phone with a GPS module and a CCD camera chip serving as a simple cosmic ray particle detector. On 17 May 2018, the CREDO Detector application for mobile phones was officially released.


The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
