Particle Physics Seminar

"Installation and preliminary results from ProtoDUNE Single Phase experiment at CERN"

Presented by Maura Spanu, BNL

DUNE is a leading-edge, international experiment for neutrino science and proton decay. Its ambitious physics program requires a careful prototyping of the engineering solutions envisaged for the scale-up of the LArTPC technology, as well as a careful control of the systematics through the acquisition of a deep knowledge of the detector response and performances. ProtoDUNE is an extensive prototype program (ProtoDUNE) development at the European Research Center (CERN) Neutrino Platform facility with the aim to answer to all the open questions about DUNE design. The Single Phase prototype (ProtoDUNE SP) has been assembled in the EHN1 extension at CERN between 2016 and 2018 and it successfully took its first beam data from a dedicated SPS tertiary line from September to November 2018.
