Description

LAGUNA-LBNO (Large Appartus studying Grand Unification and Neutrino Astrophysics for Long Baseline Neutrino Oscillations) is a feasibility study with the intent to host next generation neutrino detectors. These experiments possess the ability to probe the universe further with proposed detectors of the 100 kton scale. A basic overview of the long baseline experiment is presented with the focus on the Near Detector design. Monte Carlo simulations form the basis of the study. A high pressure gas Argon TPC design is implemented and its capabilities are presented with neutrino energy reconstruction techniques employed.
