ARGONCUBE - liquid argon R&D experiments at Bern/CERN and Sheffield
Work on this detector R&D programme in liquid argon technology aimed towards developing advanced charge readout concepts for the next generation of liquid argon neutrino experiments. Sheffield is responsible for building a reference R&D detector of 1.0 x 0.5m size for installation in the Bern ArgonCUBE cryostat and later at CERN. Chance for long term attachment (6-12 months) in Bern or at CERN in Switzerland. Participate in design and construction of liquid argon test detectors at Bern and in Sheffield; application of charge and light readout devices (silicon photo-sensors, photomultipliers, GEMs and micromegas); development of purification techniques; measurement of liquid argon parameters including electron drift; study of liquid argon technology for medical applications and other fields outside particle physics.
