The MINERvA experiment at Fermilab is currently running 24×7 in the NuMI neutrino beam.

We have set up a Remote Operations Center (UROC) at Oregon State where we can run remote shifts monitoring data acquisition and controlling data taking. This frees up the experts at Fermilab for emergency repairs.


The screen on the far left shows neutrino interactions as they are logged at Fermilab.


This is a picture of an anti-neutrino interaction in the MINERvA detector. The invisible neutrino entered from the left, hit a nucleus and produced a muon particle which exits to the right. The color scale of the far right shows the amount of energy deposited in each pixel of the detector.  The detector is about 10 m long and 2 m across.
