September 13, 2023Neutrinos Group
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.
The first of two Time Projection Chambers (TPC) was delivered to J-PARC end of August. After undergoing a serious of quality checks after the transport from CERN to J-PARC, on the 7th of September, the detector was transported to the final building and installation in the experiment was then successfully carried out.
