Associated research grant:19/11557-2 - Light detection system for the DUNE X-ARAPUCA experiment, AP.JP


This IC project is part of the context of experimental neutrino physics that uses LArTPC detectors. The work will focus on testing a new generation of photomultipliersilicon (SiPM) working in a cryogenic environment. These photon sensors are coupled to the X-ARAPUCA device, which is intended to detect light scintillation from liquid argon. X-ARAPUCA will be installed in the SBND and DUNE experiments. (AU)
