Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers for Neutrino Physics
As the most abundant massive particles in our universe, neutrinos are elusive and provide a promising window to probe the fundamental physics. They are everywhere but almost never interact with matter. Questions about the nature of neutrinos and whether they are the reason that universe is made of matter rather than antimatter are still unanswered. One promising detector technology that can be used to study neutrinos in detail is the liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC), which has been adopted by many accelerator-based neutrino experiments including the Fermilab Short-Baseline Neutrino program and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. LArTPCs promise to have millimeter-scale spatial resolution and excellent calorimetric capabilities in the detection of particles traversing the liquid argon and the measurement of their properties. In this talk, the landscape of LArTPCs for neutrino physics will be discussed, along with the prospects and status of the LArTPC neutrino experiments at Fermilab.
