MicroBooNE light collection system    [PDF]

Teppei Katori
MicroBooNE is a neutrino experiment located on axis in the Booster Neutrino Beamline, at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, scheduled to begin data collection in 2014. The MicroBooNE detector consists of two main components: a large liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC), and a light collection system. Thirty two 8-inch diameter cryogenic photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) will detect the scintillation light generated in the liquid argon. In this article, we describe the basic features of the system and current status of MicroBooNE light collection system.
