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 born at CERN

Born from prototyping activities launched within the AIDA project, the Baby MIND aims to measure the momentum and identify the charge of muons that are the product of neutrino interactions in the WAGASCI detector at J-PARC. The WAGASCI detector,…

ICARUS flies to Fermilab

The ICARUS T600 detectors are ready to start their journey to Fermilab. At the time of writing this note, the two detectors are parked at CERN, close to building 185 where 43 years ago neutral currents were discovered by the Gargamelle experiment.…
