Description

Future, large-scale liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) detectors provide a unique opportunity to search for neutron-antineutron oscillation. This is a rare, baryon-number-violating signature predicted only by theories beyond the Standard Model. This talk will present a convolutional neural network approach that can be used to search for neutron-antineutron oscillation events in the future Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). The network performance will be presented, along with preliminary sensitivity results.
