Neutrino Detector Argus-2


Neutrino Detector Argus-2 - a United Governments neutrino detector. Neutrinos are fundamental particles with half-integer spin that participate only in weak and gravitational interactions. Low energy neutrinos interact extremely weakly with matter, which is why radiation from them at any dose is totally harmless to humans. It is structured like a nesting doll for maximal shielding from any particles other than neutrinos (a layer of ultrapure water, then a layer of pseudocumene, and a scintillator core, in which, interacting with electrons, neutrinos generate traces in the form of Cherenkov Radiation).
