Description

The Daya Bay reactor anti-neutrino experiment has made the most precise measurement of the neutrino mixing angle $\theta_{13}$ to date, using six identical gadolinium-loaded liquid scintillator detector modules. A fully automated calibration system was developed to give a comprehensive and robust calibration of detector response with multiple gamma and neutron sources. In this talk, I will describe the design, construction, and performance of the calibration system.
