      How to detect GeV neutrinos using a magnetised detector? Iron Calorimeter @ India-based Neutrino Observatory 1h 30m

      Abstract:

      India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) is a proposed underground lab to house a 50 kilo ton magnetised Iron Calorimeter (ICAL) detector to detect atmospheric neutrinos. The detector, mainly optimised for the detection of GeV muons will be able to separate μ− and μ+ from the charged current interaction of atmospheric muon neutrinos and muon antineutrinos respectively. The main goal of the experiment is to make use of Earth matter effects and determine neutrino mass hierarchy. It will consist of resistive plate chambers (RPCs) as the active detector elements and iron as neutrino target. I will give a brief summary of the R&D activities for ICAL experiment and some of its projected sensitivities to 2–3 neutrino oscillation
      parameters.
