Each moment, more than 100 trillion neutrinos course through our bodies undetected. Neutrinos are subatomic entities that are plentiful throughout the cosmos. They have a special trait — they seldom interact with other matter, making them elusive and challenging to spot. Investigating neutrinos can offer vital revelations regarding fundamental queries about the cosmos, as they are potential candidates for dark matter.
Air Products is set to deliver a bespoke nitrogen liquefaction equipment suite to the Fermi Research Alliance (FRA) to bolster research related to the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, or DUNE. The DUNE research endeavor will be conducted over a mile beneath the ground within the South Dakota Black Hills, situated at the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) at the US Department of Energy (DOE) Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, often referred to as Fermilab.
