About This PhD Project

Project Description

Participate in the design, construction, operation and data analysis of the ProtoDUNE experiment at CERN. Chance for long term attachment (6-12 months) in CERN. ProtoDUNE is the test-bed experiment for the huge 10 kton DUNE liquid argon long baseline neutrino detector to be built in the US from 2019. ProtoDUNE comprises six liquid argon time project chamber units of 6 x 2.5m to be installed in a large cryostat in a beam line at CERN. Sheffield is playing a key role in design and installation of one of these units. The student can participate in design, construction, operation and analysis of beam data from ProtoDUNE. This a rare chance to become integral to work towards the huge DUNE experiment in the US, gaining both hardware and software expertise.
