Information on precautionary site access restrictions to Fermilab's Batavia site in response to coronavirus/COVID-19
We continue to review all events currently planned for the next sixty days and organizers will be notified if their event must be canceled, postponed, or held remotely. Please, check back on Indico during this time for updates regarding your meeting specifics.
As DOE O 142.3A, Unclassified Foreign Visits and Assignments Program (FVA) applies not only to physical access to DOE sites, technologies, and equipment, but also information, all remote events hosted by Fermilab must comply with FVA requirements. This includes participant registration and agenda review. Please contact Melissa Ormond, FVA Manager, with any questions.

indico search will be reestablished in the next version upgrade of the software:

Oral Presentation SBN & DUNE


Mr Logan Clutch Jackson Rice (Northern Illinois University)


The DUNE Single Phase Far Detector will be sensitive to neutrinos from supernova neutronization bursts from within the Milky Way. In order to fully reconstruct these interactions, signals from the charge collection system need to be correctly matched to signals from the photon detection system. The challenge is to distinguish flashes of light produced by low energy supernova neutrinos from those produced by trace radioactive decays within the liquid argon. Currently there are multiple potential designs of the photon detection system that deliver different flash matching capabilities. This presentation is an analysis and comparison of the flash matching capabilities of different detector schemes.
