DUNE is a 40 kton neutrino detector in South Dakota that is built to study neutrinos produced at FermiLab. It is located 800 miles away (at an oscillation max) so it will have a special sensitivity to electron neutrinos. The TAMU Toback research group is working with UTA Asaadi research group to study the effectiveness of the Q-Pix detector setup through the creation and study of simulations. The goal is to determine the dynamic range of current that the circuit will experience through events as well as to determine other properties of the Q-Pix circuit to optomize the performance of the system.
