Interim report on beam optimization released

The DUNE beam optimization task force has delivered its Interim Report. In this report, the task force recommends an optimized focusing system that includes three focusing horns and a significantly longer target than that of the current reference design. The report represents work done since last September in collaboration with the LBNF beam project and the Accelerator and Beam working group…
