This page is in initial stages of construction.


According to the physics goals of the experiment, we need to consider the following main sources of signal:

  • The "beam neutrino" signal
  • The Supernova Burst (SNB) signal
  • Proton Decay
  • Solar neutrinos

All these signals have distinct energy scales, topologies and other characteristics. In terms of buffering and processing data in real or near time, they pose different requirements.

Beam Neutrinos

Because of the energy scale (~GeV range) neutrino interactions will be characterized by TPC signals well above radiological background. Zero-suppression will lead to significant reduction of data volume and rates (the detector will appear "empty" for the most part).
