The DUNE Near Detector

Jul 26, 2021, 2:45 PM


Parallel session talk Detector R&D and Data Handling T12: Detector R&D and Data Handling


Andrew Mastbaum (Rutgers University)


The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is an upcoming long-baseline neutrino experiment which will study neutrino oscillations. Neutrino oscillations will detected at the DUNE far detector 1300 km away from the start of the beam at Fermilab. The DUNE near detector (ND) will be located on-site at Fermilab, and will be used to provide an initial characterization of the neutrino beam, as well as to constrain systematic uncertainties on neutrino oscillation measurements. The detector suite consists of a modular 50-ton LArTPC (ND-LAr), a magnetized 1-ton gaseous argon time projection chamber (ND-Gar) surrounded by an  electromagnetic calorimeter, and the System for on-Axis Neutrino Detection (SAND), composed by magnetized electromagnetic calorimeter and inner tracker. In this talk, these detectors and their physics goals will be discussed.
