Title: Scintillation Light DAQ and Trigger System for the ICARUS T600 Experiment at Fermilab

Abstract

ICARUS T600 will operate at shallow depths as far detector for the Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program at FNAL taking data from the BNB and NuMI beams. The entire apparatus will be exposed to the huge cosmic background which can mimic genuine neutrino interactions. To distinguish the signals related to the neutrino beams from those induced by cosmic rays, the detector will be provided with a trigger system that will exploit the coincidence of the prompt signals from the liquid argon scintillation light, detected by 360 Photomultiplier Tubes (PMTs), with a beam gate window generated in correspondence to the expected arrival time of neutrinos in the T600.
