Two decades ago neutrinos provided the first evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). In the coming two, they could also be the key to answer some of the outstanding questions in fundamental physics, such as the origin of mass and flavour, or the cosmic asymmetry between matter and antimatter. Many new neutrino experiments with improved sensitivity are being planned. The time projection chamber (TPC) — 50 years after its invention, and already a staple in collider detectors — will have a central role in several of them.
In this seminar I will talk about one of this new experiments: The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment at Fermilab with primary goals of resolving the neutrino mass hierarchy and measuring the charge- parity violating phase, the indicator of a possible explanation for our matter-dominated universe.
