The NuLat Project
NuLat is a compact, segmented, fast-timing antineutrino
detector. It employs lithiated scintillator, high voltage
Hamamatsu photomultiplier tubes, fast-timing electronics
developed at UH Manoa's IDL, and a Raghavan Optical Lattice
(ROL). The ROL is essential for event reconstruction and energy
calibrations as air gaps between the scintillator cubes allow
for total internal reflection, channeling light down the
principal axes to the PMTs. Below, this is roughly demonstraed
by shining lights of various colors through different cubes.
NuLat collaboration includes scientists at the University of
Hawaii at Manoa, Virginia Tech, University of Maryland, NIST,
North Carolina Central University, Drexel University, and
Louisiana State University. For more information on the project
at UH, contact Ryan Dorrill, Slava Li, or John Learned.
