Jiangmen, Sichuan, PRC.
Prof. Boonrucksar Soonthornthum, NARIT Executive Director leads NARIT team to join JUNO (Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory) as a full member.
The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a multipurpose neutrino experiment designed to determine neutrino mass hierarchy and precisely measure oscillation parametersby detecting reactor neutrinos from the Yangjiang and Taishan Nuclear Power Plants, observe supernova neutrinos, study the atmospheric, solar neutrinos and geo-neutrinos, and perform exotic searches, with a 20-thousand-ton liquid scintillator detector of unprecedented 3% energy resolution (at 1 MeV) at 700-meter deep underground.
"The project is one of NARIT's initiatives in the pursuit of excellence in the field of neutrino research. The full membership will allow the Thai researchers to be exposed to this cutting edge facility and to produce monumental research work in the field", remarked Prof. Boonrucksar Soonthornthum.
