Probing Beyond Standard Model Physics in the ICARUS Detector at Fermilab

Biswaranjan Behera

The 476-ton active mass ICARUS T-600 liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) was a pioneering development that became the template for neutrino and rare event detectors, including the massive next generation international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. It began operation in 2010 at the underground Gran Sasso National Laboratories and was transported to Fermilab in the US in 2017. To ameliorate the impact of shallow depth operation at Fermilab, the detector was enhanced with the addition of a new high granularity light detection system inside the LAr volume and an external cosmic ray tagging system. The detector has started operations in summer 2020 and its commissioning was completed in May 2022, collecting the first neutrino events from the BNB and the NuMI off-axis beams, ICARUS is the largest LArTPC ever to operate in a neutrino beam. In this talk I will address ICARUS achievements, its status and plans for the new run at Fermilab and the ongoing developments of the analysis tools needed to fulfill its physics program.
