Why does the universe contains matter? One of the keys to this question is the yet unknown CP violation in the neutrino sector and a world wide experimental effort is ongoing to measure this effect.
Our group is exploring a novel experimental strategy to perform this measurement based on advanced beam tracker technologies installed at accelerator neutrino experiments with a far detector made of an extremely large submarine water cerenkov neutrino telescope.
The beam tracker is one of the keystones of this new approach. It allows to reconstruct individually the neutrinos at creation with excellent resolutions. Getting access to this information opens a new era in neutrino physics.
The principles of this technique can already be tested at the NA62 experiment at CERN. During the PhD, the student will participate to the data taking operations at CERN and will analyse the data with the aim to observe, for the first time (!), a ^+ ^+
