Description

Baikal-GVD is a kilometer scale neutrino telescope under construction in Lake Baikal, which will be formed by multimegaton subarrays – clusters of strings. First demonstration cluster “Dubna” has been deployed in 2015 and comprises 192 optical modules (OMs). In 2016 cluster “Dubna” was upgraded to baseline configuration which comprises 288 OMs arranged at eight strings. The second full scale GVD-cluster is under construction in 2017 in Lake Baikal. We review a present activity towards the GVD implementation and describe some selected results obtained with array “Dubna”.
