About This PhD Project

Project Description

Work on the design and test of liquid argon detectors for the billion dollar international DUNE project at Sheffield and Fermilab, USA: Chance for long term attachment (6-12 months) in Chicago. Participation in detector hardware and/or simulations and software towards optimizing the design and analysis. Work with liquid argon prototypes at Fermilab and in the UK. Options include: design and construction of liquid argon test detectors; work on design and simulation of the central 10 kton detector for DUNE including charge and light readout devices; engineering design of the anode plane arrays (APAs); development of low background simulations; measurement of liquid argon parameters including electron drift; simulations of sensitivity to background particles and neutrinos.
