The ProtoDUNE-SP detector is a large-scale prototype of the Single-Phase (SP) Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) design proposed for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). 15,360 LArTPC wires are instrumented with low electronic noise pre-amplifier and digitization ASICs integrated into Front End Motherboards (FEMBs) operating at cryogenic temperature within the cryostat. The large number of electronics channels and high performance specifications required a large-scale…

CERN ProtoDUNE Single Phase Cosmic Ray Tagger DAQ - Prepared as part of the VT-Neutrino-REU-2020

During this summer REU program, I have worked in preparing and commissioning a new C++ DAQ for the ProtoDUNE Single Phase Cosmic Ray Tagger (CRT). The CRT is installed in front and back of the

Design, construction and operation of the ProtoDUNE-SP Liquid Argon TPC

The ProtoDUNE-SP detector is a single-phase liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) that was constructed and operated in the CERN North Area at the end of the H4 beamline. This detector is a

Review of Liquid Argon Detector Technologies in the Neutrino Sector

Liquid Argon (LAr) is one of the most widely used scintillators in particle detection, due to its low cost, high availability and excellent scintillation properties. A large number of experiments in

Liquid argon photodetection systems for neutrino detectors: A minireview

A growing number of experiments with particle detectors using liquid argon are currently being carried out, as this is an excellent means of detecting neutrinos. These experiments develop different

First results on ProtoDUNE-SP liquid argon time projection chamber performance from a beam test at the CERN Neutrino Platform

The ProtoDUNE-SP detector is a single-phase liquid argon time projection chamber with an active volume of 7.2× 6.1× 7.0 m3. It is installed at the CERN Neutrino Platform in a specially-constructed
