The OPERA neutrino detector at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory (LNGS) was designed to perform the first detection of neutrino oscillations in appearance mode, through the study of ν µ → ν τ oscillations. The apparatus consists of a lead/emulsion-film target complemented by electronic detectors. It is placed in the high-energy, long-baseline CERN to(More)
The dispersion of nitrogenous compounds and heavy metals into the environment is frequent during mining activities. The effects of nickel (Ni) and cobalt (Co) on denitrification of simulated mine waters were investigated in batch bioassays and fluidized-bed reactors (FBRs). At pH 7, batch tests revealed that Co did not exhibit inhibition on denitrification(More)

New methods for efficient and unambiguous interconnection between electronic counters and target units based on nuclear photographic emulsion films have been developed. The application to the OPERA experiment, that aims at detecting ν µ ⇋ ν τ oscillations in the CNGS neutrino beam, is reported in this paper. In order to reduce background due to latent(More)
