One of the ProtoDUNE experiment’s detectors is a single-phase neutrino detector. It will require a number of anode planes to detect the signature of a neutrino interaction in a bath of liquid argon. The University of Wisconsin is fabricating some of these anode planes. This is a glimpse at the process.
From Rapid City Journal, Nov. 29, 2017: For more than five years, Ross Shaft crews have been stripping out old steel and lacing, cleaning out decades of debris, adding new ground support and installing new steel to prepare the shaft for its future role in world-leading science. On Oct. 12, all that hard work paid off when the team, which worked its way down from the surface, reached a major milestone: the 4850 Level. Deputy Director Chris Mossey weighs in.
From Science, Sept. 20, 2017: UK pledges $88 million to gigantic U.S. particle physics experiment — DUNE.
From USA Today, Aug. 9, 2017: Fermilab’s Bonnie Fleming and Chris Mossey talk about DUNE, LBNF, and how we can answers to questions about our universe may depend on once again striking gold in a mine buried a mile underground in rural South Dakota.
From LiveScience, July 21, 2017: On the occasion of the LBNF/DUNE groundbreaking, Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains why neutrinos are so compelling.
