This paper describes a novel idea of a fine-grained fully-active plastic scintillator detector made of many optically independent 1×1×1 cm3 cubes with readout on three orthogonal projections by wavelength shifting fibers. The original purpose of this detector is to serve as an active neutrino target for the detection, measurement and identification of the final state particles down to a few tenths MeV kinetic energies. The three readout views as well as the fine granularity ensure powerful…
