CERN discusses its new 3D printed neutrino detector SuperFGD

The CERN EP-Neutrino group aims to develop a new plastic scintillator production technique using additive manufacturing for the production of a plastic cube detector, named SuperFGD. This work will be carried out in collaboration with experts in the development of scintillator materials, the Institute for Scintillation Materials (ISMA) of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine, and the Haute École d’Ingénierie et Gestion du Canton de Vaud (HEIG-VD), industry leaders in additive manufacturing.

Albert De Roeck, senior research scientist at CERN and leader of the CERN EP-Neutrino group, spoke to Innovation News Network’s digital editor, Caitlin Magee, about the EP-Neutrino group and a new CERN-led international collaboration which will develop 3D-printed neutrino detectors.
