In the LZ's Time Projection Chamber (TPC), these flashes of light will be detected by 494 photomultiplier tubes, deployed above and below the liquid xenon.
We propose using gas-filled "time projection chamber detectors".
In the projection chamber were two Kalee 11 projectors and HML arc lamps ensuring steady, flickerless pictures.
It seemed to me that a projection chamber of some kind would be the best for completely isolating the projected solar image.
For high-magnification views, place a diaphragm midway between the telescope and projection surface to prevent the solar image from spilling onto the sides of the projection chamber.
This highlights another advantage of my projection chamber - the solar image can be about five times larger than with ordinary projection methods before it becomes too faint to view.
At the center of the system is a time projection chamber that serves as a vertex detector.
