ProtoDUNE

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.

From La Liberté, Sept. 18, 2018: Installé au CERN, le plus grand détecteur de neutrinos à argon liquide au monde vient d’enregistrer ses premières traces de particules. C’est le début d’un nouveau chapitre dans l’histoire de l’expérience internationale DUNE.
