KM3 Detector Electronic Systems


Scientific Motivation

The fundamental issue is getting as much information as possible when making observation in an unexplored region, especially when one is looking for rare events or in situations where there is a very large background. This has driven and encouraged the development of the digital optical module (DOM) and a robust digital system design.
