DUNE scientists receive NSF grant to tackle mass production of detector components for massive neutrino experiment

The NSF just awarded a $1.6-million grant to four U.S. universities, including UChicago, to develop a plan to build 150 particle detector assemblies in less than three years. DUNE will use four gigantic particle detector modules filled with a total of 70,000 tons of liquid argon to look for tracks created by neutrinos to learn more about these elusive particles and the role they play in the universe.
