Our tickets in trams,
Or pushing their babies
Abroad in their prams.

Stay as long as Jupiter Pluvius in the clouds is punching holes.

The chosen site, from the point of view of soil properties and, therefore, of punch-through characteristics, is statistically equivalent to any other location of the area covered by the in fill .
BATATA: A device to characterize the punch-through observed in underground muon detectors and to operate as a prototype for AMIGA
Additionally, in order to characterize the electromagnetic punch-through, EAS inside a limited energy range and with axis at a de fined distance from the detector have to be selected.
BATATA: A device to characterize the punch-through observed in underground muon detectors and to operate as a prototype for AMIGA
Briefly, the technique was as follows: A photo multiplier tube is placed behind a slit system, the photoelectrons are counted in short time intervals, e.g. 0.2 seconds, controlled by an accurate clock, and these counts are recorded on punched tape.
Astrometry during the past 2000 years
To ease characterization and to avoid a floating potential on pixels having an open bump connection, a punch-through network (bias grid) following the APS design was implemented even though this is known to lead to reduced charge collection efficiency in the bias-dot region after irradiation.
Prototype ATLAS IBL Modules using the FE-I4A Front-End Readout Chip
By “punching ” lowdensity spherical voids in a homogeneous matter background, with a continuous density, one obtains a Swiss-cheese Universe, for which analytic solutions have been derived (see e.g. and references therein).
The expansion of the universe observed with supernovae
This needs to be looked at in detail in the context of punch-through and backgrounds.
Physics at Future Hadron Colliders
Hadrons whose shower are not fully contained in the calorimeter and other intervening material are said to “punch-through” to the muon chambers and can mimic a muon signature.

If the components are to be identified separately, e.g. in a setup with e/γ detectors above and µ detectors below an absorber plate, the energy depositions in the e/γ detectors need to be corrected for penetrating muons and hadrons and the signals of the µ detectors for the electromagnetic and hadronic punch-through.
