Title: Overview and Status of the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility Cryogenics System

Abstract

The Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF) will host the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), an international multi-kiloton Long-Baseline neutrino experiment that will be installed about a mile underground in Lead, SD. Detectors will be located inside four cryostats filled with almost 70,000 ton of ultrapure liquid argon, with a level of impurities lower than 100 parts per trillion of oxygen equivalent contamination. The Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) provides the conventional facilities and cryogenics infrastructure supporting this experiment. The cryogenics system supplies and maintains the argon needed for DUNE, as it enables the study of neutrinos from a new and improved beamline from Fermilab, as well as the dynamics of supernovae and the possibility of proton decay. This contribution describes the main features, performance, functional requirements and modes of operations of the LBNF cryogenics system. It also details its current status, present and future needs to support the DUNE experiment.
