Collection description

Muon radiography, or muography, allows to investigate the internal structure of large dimensions objects such as volcanoes, pyramids, little hills, etcetera. It exploits muons produced in cosmic-rays, a natural source of particles constanly reaching the Earth's atmosphere from every directions. The very high penetrating power of muons makes them suitable for large bodies investigations. Muography have been successfully applied in different fields, ranging from volcanology to archaeology, civil engineering and much more. The goal of the technique is to assess the mass distribution inside the target, or the presence of voids or high-density anomalies. This thesis concerns different muon radiography applications partecipated by the author: the MURAVES experiment, devoted to the study of the Great Cone of Mt. Vesuvius, the search for underground cavity within the Mu-Ray project, and the development of a new borehole cylindrical detector for muongraphy applications.
