A second neutrino detector has just been built by the CNRS and the CEA near the Chooz nuclear power plant (Ardennes). His measurements will complement those of the first detector, installed for five years, in order to study, within the framework of the Double Chooz experiment, the characteristics of neutrinos, these almost elusive elementary particles produced in abundance notably in the Sun and in nuclear reactors. Built 400 meters from the core of the plant's reactors, this second detector was inaugurated on September 25, 2014 in the presence of representatives of the CNRS and the CEA, and local authorities, who actively support this installation.
