Time: 3:00 - 4:00pm

Venue: G O Jones 410

Reducing the uncertainty on neutrino-nucleus interaction cross-sections is crucial for future oscillation physics. High-Pressure Time Projection Chambers (HPTPCs) combine the low detection threshold advantages of gaseous detectors with better event rates due to a higher density target. Their higher density allows HPTPCs to be used as neutrino detectors and will allow a new region of kinematic space to be used to constrain neutrino-nucleus interactions. This talk will discuss their uses in future neutrino experiments and describe a prototype HPTPC that has been built in London and tested in the T10 beam facility at CERN.
