MicroBooNE Time Projection Chamber

MicroBooNE is a liquid argon time projection chamber detector which aims to reconstruct neutrino events and to differentiate between energetic electron and photon events observed in the MiniBooNE experiment.

“The MicroBooNE detector. The high voltage feedthrough enters on the right and supplies voltage to the cathode plane. One side of the field cage can be seen on the face of the cut-away (supported by the "X" braces). The sense and induction wires are on the left side of the vessel. Behind the wire planes is the support structure for the PMT array (not shown).”
