Abstract

The most ambitious neutrino program today is hosted by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory - Fermilab (IL-USA). The goal is to have a series of experiments that will extensively cover the still-open problems in neutrino physics such as mass hierarchy, CP violation, precise measurements of all mixing parameters and the three family paradigm. The entire program is based on the Liquid Argon Time Projection Chambers (LArTPCs) which has proven to be the best choice for the next generation of neutrino detectors. Given the importance of LArTPCs on the neutrino research, the Fermilab hosts the LArIAT experiment, specifically aimed at the testing and characterization of LArTPC techniques. The project written here aims to contribute to the LArIAT collaboration through the study of the problem with de charge measurements on the anodic plans of the experiment. (AU)
