CERN’s Neutrino Platform

CERN is building a dedicated test facility called ENH1, due to be completed in 2017, which will enable R&D on the DUNE prototype modules and other detector development. Image credit: CERN.

CERN has a long tradition in neutrino physics, starting with the Gargamelle detector in 1973. At the end of 2014, CERN inaugurated its Neutrino Platform with the aim of providing a focal point for Europe’s contributions to global neutrino research…

A dual tech gem for future neutrino detectors

WA105, presently at an advanced state of assembly at CERN, is a 3x1x1-metre, 25-tonne (metric ton) “dual-phase” liquid argon time projection chamber demonstrator. The dual-phase technology was developed by the European LAGUNA-LBNO consortium, with R&D efforts led by ETH Zurich for more than a decade…
