David, You should repost this question on the ALPHA list server. I'm
sure there are several schools that are doing this. (David Van Baak at
Calvin college for one.) I know the ALPHA group is getting a deal with
whoever is making the fast avalanche photo-diodes that you need for this
lab. (These cost like ~$5k a piece and you need at least two!)
