SEMINAR: A Long-Baseline Neutrino, Proton Decay and Supernova Facility Hosted in the US

June 26 2014, 12:00hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Robert J. Wilson  (LBNE Collaboration Co-Spokesperson Colorado State University)

Abstract:

In early 2013 the US Department of Energy (DOE) gave approval for the first phase of the Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) to conduct a broad scientific program including neutrino oscillations, neutrino scattering physics, search for baryon violation, supernova burst neutrinos and other interesting astrophysical
phenomena.

 In response to the endorsement of the original proposed full-scope configuration by a recent DOE advisory panel, a process to fully-internationalize the project is underway. This presentation will describe the science motivation for the experiment followed by the status of the current project centered on an intense neutrino beam produced at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab), a highly capable set of neutrino detectors on the Fermilab campus, and a large underground liquid argon time projection chamber at Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) in South Dakota 1300 km from Fermilab.  It will conclude with a few remarks on the US Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) report and progress towards internationalization.
