Proton Decay and Neutrino Experiments in the Mount Blanc Tunnel

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 107)


We report here the present status and future developments of 2 deep underground detectors located inside the Mount Blanc tunnel. A low mass prototype of a liquid scintillator detector (LSD) has been running since 1980, while the construction of the final experiment is in progress and it will be in operation in spring 1983. The LSD experiment is the result of a cooperation between Torino- CNR and Moscow-INR laboratories. A second experiment, NUSEX from Nucleon Stability Experiment, started running in May 1982. NUSEX is a fine grain calorimeter built by 3 italian laboratories (Fra- scati-INFN,Milano-INFN,Torino-CNR) and CERN
