Particle Physics Seminar

"The Short Baseline Neutrino program: laying the groundwork for DUNE"

Presented by Georgia Karagiorgi, Columbia University

Tuesday, November 22, 2016, 9:30 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

The Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) Program comprises three liquid argon time projection chamber detectors which are planning to study neutrinos from the Booster Neutrino Beamline at Fermilab, at three different locations close to the neutrino production. The trio of detectors will be able to perform precise neutrino cross section measurements, and search for short-baseline neutrino oscillations and other non-standard effects, addressing pressing questions in the field of neutrino oscillations. The SBN detectors also share the same detector technology as the future, O(100) times larger detector that will be employed for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. They therefore provide a testbed for R&D and for demonstrating the liquid argon TPC technology and its scalability. This seminar will highlight selected physics and R&D opportunities with SBN.
