  • The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment is designed to measure the neutrino mixing angle θ13 to world-leading precision. The experiment deploys identical antineutrino detectors at distances of 400-1900 m from six reactors in Daya Bay, China. Each detector incorporates two general-purpose monitoring cameras to ensure their safe construction, transportation and operation. The cameras must meet usage goals while satisfying stringent constraints on radioactivity, materials compatibility… CONTINUE READING
