Description

The Forward Physics Facility (FPF) is a proposed program to build an underground cavern with the space and infrastructure to support a suite of far-forward experiments at the Large Hadron Collider during the High Luminosity era (HL-LHC). The Forward Liquid Argon Experiment (FLArE) is a Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) based experiment designed to detect very high-energy neutrinos and search for dark matter in FPF, 620 m from the ATLAS interaction point in the far-forward direction, and will collect data during HL-LHC. With a fiducial mass of 10 tonnes, FLArE will detect millions of neutrinos at the highest energies ever detected from a human source and will also search for Dark Matter particles with world-leading sensitivity in the MeV to GeV mass range. The LArTPC technology used in FLArE is well-studied for neutrino and dark matter experiments. It offers excellent spatial resolution and allows excellent identification of individual particles. In this talk, I will overview the physics reach, preliminary design, and status of FPF and FLArE.
