"LAr TPC data reconstruction"

Presented by Dorota Stefan, CERN/NCBJ Warsaw Poland

Thursday, November 5, 2015, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In recent years, there is much interest in building massive liquid argon time projection (LAr TPC) detectors to measure among others CP violation in leptonic sector, search for nucleon decay and study a core-collapse supernova via neutrinos. Data collected by ICARUS and ArgoNuet proved that LAr TPC calorimetric and spatial resolutions are excellent. The detector technology with no doubts is much advanced, resulting with plans for the next generation of liquid argon experiments: the short baseline (SBN) and the long baseline (DUNE) are on the horizon. The LAr TPC evolved from the bubble chambers preserving the high resolution of tracking. Data analysis requires automatic event reconstruction that can understand and efficiently use the high granularity images provided by detector. The talk will cover the most recent advances in the reconstruction techniques, and also possible ways of developments since we are still on the way towards the ultimate tool for the optimal data analysis.
