Abstract

Liquid Argon TPCs are performing detectors for neutrino and astroparticle physics thanks to their high granularity, good energy resolution and 3D imaging, allowing a precise event reconstruction. At the end of May 2010 the ICARUS-T600, the first underground large mass LAr-TPC devoted to the experimental study of neutrinos, matter stability and, more generally, rare phenomena, recorded the first CNGS neutrino interaction and is presently taking data at INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory. ICARUS-T600 represents also an important step of the Liquid Argon technique towards the realization of much larger LAr-TPC detectors for future neutrino and matter stability projects.
