A dual-phase DUNE

The dual-phase detector is a concept that’s relatively new for neutrino science but familiar to researchers from other parts of particle physics… The dual-phase ProtoDUNE recently finished the first test of the charge readout plane, or CRP, which will amplify the electrons into the gas and collect their signals. The CRPs and other components should be installed this fall…


WA105 1x1x3 records first particle tracks

In a lab at CERN sits a very important box. It covers about three parking spaces and is more than a story tall. Sitting inside is a metal device that tracks energetic cosmic particles: the prototype detector WA105 3x1x1… On June 21, WA105 recorded its first particle tracks…
