The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) will be a world-class neutrino observatory and nucleon decay detector designed to answer fundamental questions about the nature of elemen- tary particles and their role in the universe. The international DUNE experiment, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermilab, will consist of a far detector to be located about 1.5 km underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in South Dakota, USA, at a distance of 1300 km from Fermilab, and a near detector to be located at Fermilab in Illinois. The far detector will be a very large, modular liquid argon time-projection chamber (LArTPC) with a 40 kt (40 Gg) fiducial mass. This LAr technology will make it possible to reconstruct neutrino interactions with image-like precision and unprecedented resolution.

Abstract

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) will be a world-class neutrino observatory and nucleon decay detector designed to answer fundamental questions about the nature of elemen- tary particles and their role in the universe. The international DUNE experiment, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermilab, will consist of a far detector to be located about 1.5 km underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in South Dakota, USA, at a distance of 1300 km from Fermilab, and a near detector to be located at Fermilab in Illinois. The far detector will be a very large, modular liquid argon time-projection chamber (LArTPC) with a 40 kt (40 Gg) fiducial mass. This LAr technology will make it possible to reconstruct neutrino interactions with image-like precision and unprecedented resolution.
