INFN—Borexino Project to Study Neutrinos
The San Grasso National Labs one of the four labs in the INFN, focuses on this research.
The interesting part about the project is the detector which is a series of concentric rings containing increasingly pure water as one goes from the outer ring to the inner ring. The ring structure helps filter out unwanted radiation. At the center is a stainless steel sphere which again uses a concentric ring structure to detect the neutrinos.
LabVIEW has been utilized in the past at this site for various projects. In this example, LabVIEW was used to operate a magnetometer. The application translated a file of sequence commands into a LabVIEW-based state machine which runs several operations in parallel.
