The Search for Dark Matter – DEAP-3600 – Dressing

After a long period of cleaning and dressing the detector on the rotator frame, the vessel was moved into its final location, lifted and attached by the neck, to a longer stainless steel neck section. Here final dressing of the acrylic vessel continued.

This shot was taken midway through this process, here you can see the lens like cups of the light guides, surrounded by white high density polyethylene, held in using clamps and springs. Mounded onto this is a PMT in a grey housing, you can see two in this photograph one installed and one mid way through the process. Finally, the PMT is surrounded by a copper heat short.

Pentax 67 on Portra 400, 45mm wide angle lens, the white balance looks weird on this, half the film, half my beginners level film scanning.

See the other shots of the vessel – Here, here and here.
