JUNO: A Multipurpose Underground Precision Neutrino Detector
August 02, 2019
The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is under construction in China to mainly determine the neutrino mass hierarchy (MH) by detecting reactor anti-neutrinos. JUNO consists of central detector, veto detector and calibration system. Its central detector is a 20 kton liquid scintillator (LS) detector and its calibration system is designed to measure the energy of neutrinos with an unprecedented energy resolution of 3% @1MeV and an energy nonlinearity better than 1%. Veto detector, consisting of water Cherenkov detector and top tracker, is used to maximally remove the background events due to cosmic-rays. Due to its large scale and best performance, JUNO will be an exceptional multipurpose detector with rich physical potentials, such as precise measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters, geo-neutrinos, astrophysical neutrinos, sterile neutrinos, dark matter searches, proton decay and other exotic searches.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
