|Aug. 23||Xiao Luo (Yale)||Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber for Neutrino Physics|
Abstract: The Time Projection Chamber (TPC) is a widely used detector technology in particle physics. As neutrino physics enters the era of precision measurement of oscillation parameters, Liquid Argon TPC (LArTPC) is chosen as the main detector technology for the future DUNE experiment - an international mega-science project seeking answers to the fundamental questions such as CP violation, neutrino mass hierarchy, and proton decay. In this talk, I will discuss the working principle of LArTPC, as well as advantages and challenges from the experiences of several existing LArTPC experiments.
