Supernova Neutrino Detection in the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment
June 10, 2020
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is a dual-site experiment for long-baseline neutrino oscillation studies and for neutrino astrophysics and nucleon decay searches. The Far Detector of DUNE will consist of four 10 kt liquid argon time-projection-chambers (LAr TPC) placed in the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) at 1300 km distance from the neutrino beam at Fermilab. The underground location of the Far Detector, at 4300 m.w.e. depth, is essential to be able to study rare and low-energy processes. DUNE will have a unique sensitivity to the electron neutrino flavor component of the core collapse of a massive star. With a large mass DUNE will be able to detect core collapse events in the Milky Way and its neighborhood. The present document reviews some recent progress on detection and reconstruction of supernova burst neutrinos in DUNE, including the contribution of the light detection system.
