Celebrating 200 Years—Learn More About Norwich

Jeffrey Morgan, Physics
(Faculty Mentor: Dr. Robert Knapik)

The goal of this project was to improve the sensitivity of neutrino detectors.  Neutrinos are one of the least understood fundamental particles and many researchers worldwide are working on learning more about their properties.  A computer simulation of the SNO+ large volume liquid scintillator neutrino detector was used to develop methods to differentiate between alpha, beta, and gamma particles.  Differentiating between these particles helps to separate background signals in the detector that interfere with neutrino detection.  The results of this work can be generalized to other particle physics detectors.
