Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

In this 5-minute video, INFN Vice President Antonio Masiero discusses Italy’s long history of innovation in neutrino physics and their role and expertise. They will contribute to the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

From Black Hills Pioneer, Sept. 25, 2018: Two years in the making, a neutrino detector built at CERN for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment , which is being used as the prototype for the much larger Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, detectors that will be housed at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, has recorded its first particle tracks.

From CNN, Sept. 21, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains the goals of Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and how the ProtoDUNE detectors will validate the technology of the much larger DUNE.

From Le Scienze, Sept. 21, 2018: Successo del prototipo dell’esperimento DUNE, allestito presso il centro di ricerca ginevrino: sono i primi indizi del passaggio di neutrini nei rivelatori costituiti da enormi serbatoi di argon liquido. È l’inizio di un progetto che porterà alla realizzazione di un apparato sperimentale simile ma 20 volte più grande al FermiLab di Chicago.
