Assembly of test stand for DUNE near detector

On Nov. 7, a Fermilab crew moved the cryostat vessel for the DUNE Near Detector Liquid Argon Demonstrator (DUNE ND-LAr) prototyping test stand, also known as ArgonCube 2×2, into the MINOS cavern 100 meters underground.

The prototype modules will undergo testing with the NuMI neutrino beam, powered by Fermilab’s Main Injector accelerator. Photo: Min Jeong Kim, Fermilab
