ArgonCube paving the way to a near site LArTPC

Spearheaded by the Laboratory for High Energy Physics at the University of Bern and made up of existing DUNE member institutions, ArgonCube is a collaboration for LArTPC detector R&D, with a focus on the technical needs for the DUNE physics program.  DUNE’s current plans include a LArTPC component in the Near Detector, but the high-intensity environment of the DUNE near site would pose problems for a standard LArTPC.  ArgonCube innovations can solve them…
