Pedro Ochoa-Ricoux (UCI) “JUNO: a 20 kton Multi-Purpose Observatory for Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics”

June 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a multi-purpose neutrino detector under construction in China. With a 20 kton neutrino target, and an energy resolution of 3% at 1 MeV, it will be the largest and most precise liquid scintillator detector ever constructed. By studying the disappearance of antineutrinos emitted from 8 nuclear reactors at a strategic baseline of about 53~km, JUNO will determine the neutrino mass ordering to ~3σ significance within 6 years of running and will measure 3 neutrino oscillation parameters to sub-percent precision. JUNO will also study neutrinos from a variety of natural sources, such as the Earth, the Sun, and supernova explosions, and will deploy a satellite detector called JUNO-TAO that will measure the energy spectrum of reactor antineutrinos with unprecedented precision. The experiment is currently under construction, and completion is expected by 2022. JUNO’s physics prospects will be discussed in this talk alongside its ambitious design and current status.
