The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a cubic-kilometer-scale neutrino detector and cosmic ray air shower array at the geographic South Pole. The detector consists of over 5400 digital optical modules (DOMs), with 98.5% of modules still taking data. High detector uptime and a real-time Iridium satellite link have helped to facilitate recent astrophysical neutrino discoveries. Prototype air...

Recent results presented by IceCube have demonstrated the potential of large instrumented volume type detectors for multi-messenger astronomy using neutrinos. Conducting deep astronomical observations with such type of detector requires increasing the sensitivity and therefore mostly the detector volume by around 2 orders of magnitude, a goal that might not be achievable with a single...

Large-scale neutrino detectors typically observe photons created by interactions inside of the target volume. These detectors deploy a wide variety of technologies, most commonly water, ice, or scintillator targets surrounded by PMTs. The detected photons carry information that goes unused, most notably the wavelength, which can indicate the production method and travel time of the photon. In...

Microchannel plate (MCP) is always used in the small PMTs as the electron multiplier for the fast timing detection, which greatly improved the time resolution of PMT. The large scaler neutrino detectors, such as SuperK, DayaBay, JUNO and HyperK, need the large area PMTs for the large photocathode coverage and less electronic channels. Usually there was only one type of 20 inch PMT based on the...

We propose using multi-PMTs (mPMTs) for the photosensors for the E61 near detector (as well as a fraction of Hyper-K photosensors). Our mPMT design has nineteen 3" PMTs enclosed in water-tight pressure vessel, providing excellent spatial imaging of the Cherenkov light ring. This talk will describe the design of the signal digitization electronics for the E61 mPMTs. We will start by explaining...

MicroBooNE is a liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) with an 85-ton active mass situated on the Booster Neutrino Beam at Fermilab. Some of the experiment goals are investigating the excess of electron-like events observed in MiniBooNE, performing cross-section measurements of neutrino interactions in argon and gaining knowledge about the operation and the detector physics of LArTPCs...

The 760 ton ICARUS T600 detector performed a successful three-year physics run at the underground LNGS laboratories studying neutrino oscillations with the CNGS neutrino beam from CERN, and searching for atmospheric neutrino interactions. ICARUS performed a sensitive search for LSND like anomalous $\nu_e$ appearance in the CNGS beam, which contributed to constrain the allowed parameters...

ProtoDUNE-SP is the single-phase DUNE Far Detector prototype that was recently built at CERN and is in operation since September 2018. ProtoDUNE-SP is a crucial part of the DUNE effort towards the construction of the first DUNE 10-kt fiducial mass far detector module (17 kt total LAr mass), but also a significant experiment in its own right. With a total liquid argon (LAr) mass of 0.77 kt, it...

Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), which is consist of two neutrino detectors placed near and far of Fermilab, will address several questions in neutrino physics. In addition, It intends to facilitate the study of neutrinos from the supernova and search for proton decay. The liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) technology has been adopted to detect the neutrino...

ARIADNE is a 1-ton two-phase liquid argon (LAr) time projection chamber (TPC) featuring a novel optical readout method. The detector uses a Thick Gas Electron Multiplier (THGEM) in the extraction region to generate secondary scintillation light which is imaged using 4 Electron-Multiplying (EM)CCD cameras to produce high resolution images of particle interactions within the detector. This...
