The DUNE ND-LAr consortium is conducting an extensive prototyping campaign for the Liquid Argon
TPC for the DUNE Near Detector. The DUNE ND-LAr detector consists of 35 individual modules with
a total fiducial mass of 50 tons. As part of the prototyping campaign a demonstrator detector holding
2x2 modules is placed in the NuMI beam at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab). Each 2x2
module is tested individually at the University of Bern, recording > 5 million cosmic ray interactions. Using
these data different detector performance studies could be performed. This talk will discuss the performance
of the light readout system with a focus on the spatial and temporal resolution as well as on the photon
detection efficiency.
