CHIPS and the new deal


Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems

Date and Time: Monday, 11 May 2020, at 11:00 AM

Venue: Online conference in Zoom

Seminar topic: “CHIPS and the new deal”

Speaker: Thomas Jennifer


CHIPS is a 5kt prototype detector, now deployed in the NuMI neutrino beam. Its goal is to demonstrate the possibility of radically cheaper neutrino detectors and all that stems from that ability regarding precision measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters. Design, construction and deployment of the CHIPS detector will be discussed and the plan for future work will be outlined.
