VIRTUAL MEETING ONLY; Neutrino Seminar Series – The DUNE LAr Near Detector Prototype Modular LArTPC”

  • May 12, 2022, 1:00 pm US/Central

This week we are pleased to host Dr. Brooke Russell from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, who will give a virtual seminar on “The DUNE LAr Near Detector Prototype Modular LArTPC”. Please join us on Thursday May 12th at 1 PM Central Time.

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is a next generation long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment designed to resolve the neutrino mass hierarchy to 5σ precision in the near-term and after a 10 year exposure observe charge-parity violation in the neutrino sector to a precision of 5σ for 50% of all δCP values. A performant near detector is required to realize DUNE long-baseline neutrino oscillation physics sensitivities. I will introduce the DUNE Near Detector, focusing on the atypical design necessitated by unprecedented neutrino beam intensity. I will discuss critical experimental challenges and highlight novel instrumentation, namely low-power custom ASICs with mixed-signal large-format PCB anodes for unambiguous 3D charge readout. Recent results from the analysis of cosmic rays in a ton-scale prototype detector will be discussed.

Thank you,
