Design, Status and Physics Potential of JUNO
April 17, 2022
The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a 20 kton multi-purpose liquid scintillator detector currently being built in a dedicated underground laboratory in Jiangmen (PR China). Data-taking is expected to start in 2023. JUNO’ s main physics goal is the determination of the neutrino mass ordering using electron anti-neutrinos from two nuclear power plants at a baseline of about 53 km. JUNO aims for an unprecedented energy resolution of 3 % at 1 MeV for the central detector, which will allow determining the mass ordering with 3 $\sigma$ significance within six years of operation. Furthermore, measurements in neutrino physics and astrophysics, such as estimating the solar oscillation parameters and the atmospheric mass splitting with an accuracy of 0.5 % or better, will be performed. In these proceedings, JUNO’s design, the status of its construction, and its physics potential, will be presented alongside a short excursion into its rich R&D program.
