The Double Chooz detector

A. Tonazzo
  • Function : Author


The Double Chooz experiment will measure neutrino oscillations by comparing the neutrino flux and spectrum in two identical detectors at different distances from a reactor core. Its aim is to make almost an order of magnitude improvement on our knowledge of the last unmeasured neutrino mixing parameter sin2(2θ13). This paper presents the detector concept and the main ongoing items for development and optimisation of single systems.
