HALO-1kT and other supernova detectors

Not scheduled


Dr Andrea Gallo Rosso (Laurentian University)


When the next galactic supernova explodes, we'll need to be ready to get the most of its neutrino signal. HALO-1kT is a 1 kton lead-based supernova detector that will be possibly be built at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS) in Italy. Its sensitivity to Charged-Current electron neutrinos makes it complementary to most of the other supernova detectors, mainly based on water or liquid scintillator. In the present work, we implement multi-dimensional, Monte Carlo based likelihood analyses in order to assess the contribution HALO-1kT can give in reconstructing the detected time-integrated fluxes (fluences) both alone or combined with two major supernova detectors as Super-Kamiokande and the Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO).


Proposed HALO-1kT is a robust detector that could help constrain the $\nu_\mathrm{e}$ fluence.
