Neutrinos are the most abundant matter and most mysterious particle in the universe. Contrary to the predictions of the Standard Model, they have mass and can transition from one type to another. This phenomenon of neutrino oscillations may be different for neutrinos and anti-neutrinos and may help to explain our matter dominated universe via leptogenesis.

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) will be a world-class neutrino observatory and nucleon decay detector designed to answer these and other fundamental questions about the nature of elementary particles. Situated underground at SURF in the world’s most intense neutrino beam and constructed as a modular liquid argon time-projection chamber (LArTPC), it will reconstruct interactions with image-like precision and unprecedented resolution. The presentation will give an introduction to the project and report on recent progress.
