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 keystone of this new approach. It allows to reconstruct individually neutrinos at creation with excellent resolution. Getting access to this information opens a new era in neutrino physics.
During this internship, we will study, in the lab, the performance of such a tracker in particular the pixel time resolution.
