The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility will be a world-class facility that will host the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. Fermilab’s LBNF is a U.S. Department of Energy project with substantial international contributions. DUNE is an international scientific collaboration that is hosted by Fermilab; DUNE-US is the U.S. contribution to the international experiment.
The organizational structure of LBNF and DUNE reflects the successful management of another international particle physics project — the construction and operation of the Large Hadron Collider and its experiments at CERN. At CERN, the Large Hadron Collider serves as the infrastructure and provides the beam for experiments such as CMS and ATLAS. Here, LBNF provides the infrastructure and the beamline for the DUNE experiment. LBNF and DUNE are both comprised of national and international partners.
LBNF/DUNE-US is an independent entity within Fermilab, led by Fermilab deputy director for LBNF/DUNE-US, Chris Mossey.
The LBNF/DUNE-US project team is led by Chris Mossey (project director), Ron Ray (deputy project director) and Kurt Vetter (project manager).
The project scope is delivered under the leadership of Mary Convery (deputy project director for facilities), Marzio Nessi (deputy project director for far detector), and Sam Zeller (deputy project director for near detector).
