We propose a scalable line of liquid argon TPC detectors based on a three dimensional cubic frame array immersed on a common liquid argon volume. The paper describes general lines, main construction criteria, crucial points, parameters and required preliminary R&D activities for the construction of detectors with active mass ranging from 200 ton to 100(More)
The branching ratio for the decay K + → π + ν ¯ ν is sensitive to new physics; the NA62 experiment will measure it to within about 10%. To reject the dominant background from channels with final state photons, the large-angle vetoes (LAVs) must detect particles with better than 1 ns time resolution and 10% energy resolution over a very large energy range.(More)
The BaBar Drift Chamber is now under construction. We review its design, the progress in the construction of the components, the plan for assembly and stringing and we present test results obtained with a prototype exposed at SLAC to cosmic rays. We also report on projected dE/dx performance from beam tests done with a chamber with a different cell design.(More)
In the deep sea, the sense of time is dependent on geophysical fluctuations, such as internal tides and atmospheric-related inertial currents, rather than day-night rhythms. Deep-sea neutrino telescopes instrumented with light detecting Photo-Multiplier Tubes (PMT) can be used to describe the synchronization of bioluminescent activity of abyssopelagic(More)
