Marco Del Tutto

Graduate reading for DPhil in Particle Physics

I am a DPhil Student working on MicroBooNE, a Liquid Argon Neutrino Experiment. See the Research section to find out more about my research.

I am the project leader of VENu: The Virtual Environment for Neutrino. VENu is a smartphone app to support would-be physicists to see neutrino activity and to even try and catch them themselves. You can download the app for free here.

I was interviewed by Fermilab, IOP Physics World, IBTimes UK, and the local TV "That's Oxfordshire", look videos and podcasts clicking on the images below!

I did my Masters at the University of Rome "Sapienza", where I graduate on October 2015.
For my Masters Thesis I worked for six months on the NOvA neutrino experiment. My effort was to study the neutrino beam and try to increase the neutrino flux toward the NOvA detectors. Here is a link to my Master's Thesis.

Working on the MicrooBooNE experiment, my research is focused on the study of NuMI neutrino interactions in the MicroBooNE detector. At Fermilab there are two neutrino beams that serve a variety of experiment: the BNB and the NuMI beam lines. MicrooBooNE is sited along the BNB line. Although, due to its proximity, some NuMI neutrinos reach the MicroBooNE detector as well.
The study of these interactions is really important since will allow a deeper understanding of the NuMI beam and will allow additional oscillation and cross section measurements.
