Mr Guillermo Fernandez Moroni (Fermilab)


This is a new experiment intended to detect very low energy neutrinos coming from a nuclear reactor using CCDs (Charge Coupled Devices). These silicon detectors have very low energy threshold (~7eV RMS) and very good spatial resolution (~15um). Also, nowadays, it is possible to fabricate very thick CCDs (~250um) increasing the detecting mass to 1g. All these characteristics make them a perfect candidate for detecting low energy neutrinos by coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering. The experiment is going to be running at Angra Nuclear Power Plant in Brazil since 2013.
