SND@LHC

 

The SND@LHC (Scattering and Neutrino detector) project has been proposed in 2020, approved in March 2021, and the detector is expected to take data from 2022 onwards. The experiment aims to reconstruct neutrinos of all three flavours produced in the LHC proton-proton collisions taking place in the ATLAS interaction point. The neutrino energies are in an yet unexplored energy range of a couple of 100 GeV up to TeV, also of interest for astroparticle physics.

The detector also allows us to search for light dark matter particles produced in the primary proton-proton interactions.

Research Topics

  • Muon detector

    Together with the universities of Bologna, Lausanne, Mainz, and Zürich, we are engaged in the construction and operation of the muon detector, which also serves as a hadron calorimeter. The muon detector is based on plastic scintillators viewed by silicon photomultipliers.

  • In the analysis, we will analyse deep-inelastic scattering events of muon neutrinons and will search for light dark matter particles with couplings to vector mediators via the baryonic current.
