SBND

From Syracuse University, Jan. 2, 2019: A group at Syracuse University has led the U.S. effort to build two major components for Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Near Detector, an upcoming experiment to study neutrinos. The components have been shipped to Fermilab.

The upcoming Short-Baseline Near Detector at Fermilab continues scientists’ search for evidence of a hypothetical particle, the sterile neutrino. Collaborators around the world are participating in the detector’s construction. Its first critical components recently arrived from partner institutions. When complete, SBND will be the third and final detector in Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Neutrino Program.
