ArgoNeuT hits a home run with measurements of neutrinos in liquid argon

The ArgoNeuT experiment was the first ever to make cross-section measurements of neutrino and antineutrino (the neutrino’s antimatter counterpart) interactions resulting in a muon, a charged pion and any number of nucleons in the final state using argon as the target.

Identifying lower-energy neutrinos with a liquid-argon particle detector

The ArgoNeuT experiment recently demonstrated for the first time that a particular class of particle detector — those that use liquid argon — can identify signals in an energy range that particle physicists call the “MeV range.” It’s the first substantive step in confirming that researchers will be able to detect a wide energy range […]
