Slicing and dicing. In a proposed detector design, an antineutrino (green track) triggers inverse beta decay in a target layer, creating a neutron (yellow) and a positron (purple) that generate signals in adjacent capture layers. Connecting the dots makes it possible to deduce the antineutrino’s trajectory.
A proposed detector for low-energy antineutrinos would reveal the particles’ trajectories, potentially allowing more detailed studies of Earth’s radioactivity and of nuclear reactors….
