Neutrino Physics


The most challenging neutrino physics goals could be addressed by a long-baseline neutrino beam coupled to a large underground detector. Three design studies lay the foundations for this project:

Current Experiments

  • LAGUNA (Europe) Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LAGUNA-LBNO)
    Successfully concluded design phase in Finland. Larger mass detectors will be developed in the future through an incremental approach. The consortium is also active in the construction of a large TPC demonstrator at CERN and is developing plans for an underground pilot project.
  • LBNF (USA)
    A large fraction of the European neutrino community is exploring the possibility to participate in the Long Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) hosted by FNAL. LBNF is to start data taking in 2021 and to complete detector construction in 2025
  • BOREXINO (Italy)
  • GERmanium Detector Array (GERDA-1, Italy)
