DUNE prototype activities at the Neutrino Platform

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), now under construction, is a long baseline neutrino experiment with a near detector at Fermilab and far detector at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota to observe neutrinos…

Gearing up preparations for the T2K-II phase

The upgrade of the near detector of the T2K experiment became in April 2019 an official CERN Neutrino Platform experiment (NP07). As a consequence an increased detector assembly activity has been started at CERN over the last months. This will…

The 3D printed Detector (3DET) Project

Plastic scintillator is one of the most used active materials in high-energy physics. The “3D printed Detectors” (3DET) collaboration was formed in 2019 with the goal of investigating and developing additive manufacturing as a new production…

Hunting for axion-like particles at neutrino detectors

Although neutrinos were discovered more than 60 years ago, they are the most mysterious particles in the Standard Model (SM). While the present data collected at the neutrino experiments can explain several neutrino properties, there are still at…

T2K Neutrino Oscillation Results

The T2K collaboration studies neutrino oscillations. These oscillations arise from quantum mechanical interference caused by the fact that every neutrino of the type electron, muon, or tau is a combination of three neutrino mass states. The neutrino…

Proto-DUNE at CERN: New technologies for new discoveries

Following many years of R&D work, recent results from ProtoDUNE-SP, the single-phase DUNE Far Detector prototype at the CERN Neutrino Platform, now validate the Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) technology choice for DUNE providing…

Using 3D printing techniques for future neutrino detectors

Plastic scintillator is one of the most used active materials in high-energy physics. A charged particle crossing a plastic scintillator loses part of its initial energy and produces a quantity of scintillation light that depends on its energy and…

Baby MIND prepares for first physics run with WAGASCI at T2K

Extracting ever more precise information from long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments calls for a better understanding of neutrino production and neutrino interactions with their target detectors, through experimental programmes dedicated to…

ENUBET: a beam for the precision era of neutrino physics

Even if neutrino oscillations were discovered more than 20 years ago, our knowledge of mixing, flavor oscillation and CP violation in the neutrino sector is still far from the precision achieved for quarks. CP violation in the quark sector was…

Physics from neutrino near detectors: opening a new window for BSM searches

With the advent of a new generation of neutrino experiments which leverage high-intensity neutrino beams for precision measurements, it is timely to explore the opportunity that these experiments offer for searches of beyond the standard model (BSM…
