Subject: Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber for Neutrino Physics

The observation of neutrino oscillation has revolutionized neutrino physics and opened a window towards new physics. The next goal in neutrino oscillation physics is to build multiple-kiloton neutrino detectors to decisively determine CP violation in the neutrino sector and the neutrino mass hierarchy. Due to the high performance and low cost, the Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) is an exceptionally promising technique for the next generation of neutrino experiments. Many R&D efforts for LArTPC are being carried out around
the world. This talk will give an introduction to the LArTPC technology and an overview of LArTPC neutrino experiments.
