TF1: Near Detector Optimisation
The near detector optimization task force is charged to:
• develop GEANT4 simulations of the reference design near detector and possible alternatives;
• perform a full end-to-end simulation connecting the measurements in the near detector to the far detector systematics using, for example, the VALOR framework;
• evaluate the potential benefits of augmenting the reference design with
o a LAr-TPC
o the use of a High Pressure Gaseous TPC;
• produce a first report on their findings to the DUNE Technical Board by September 2016 and a final report by March 2017.
