New ND280 Upgrade milestone achieved
May 8, 2023Neutrinos Group
At CERN, the first cosmic tracks with the first of the final TPC field cages have been recorded. An important milestone towards shipping the first TPC to Japan this summer.
On a rleated note, Analysis of test beam data taken with a prototype of TPC with resistive Micromegas for the T2K Near Detector upgrade has been published by Nucl.Instrum.Meth.A.
And on May 10th, the 149th Meeting of the SPSC committee will be held. Thorsten Lux will present the status of the NP07 experiment (ND280 Upgrade project)
Three new IFAE patents
October 9, 2023
IFAE filed a new medical imaging technology patent application: “Proton CT System with Improved Proton Energy Detector” and a patent application was granted named “Devices, Systems, and Methods for Mammography with a Detector Having Reduced Dimensions.” The third is a PET technology based new patent application filed in the European Patent Office.

The detector is already connected to the gas system and first cosmics in this configuration are expected to be recorded in about 4 weeks. First data taking with a neutrino beam is planned for the 2nd half of November and December.
