The liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) is one of the most promising detector technologies in neutrino physics. It is the technology of choice for DUNE, the multi-kton long baseline neutrino experiment to be built in the US in the next decade. However, the precision of 3D and calorimetric reconstruction of these detectors allows exciting physics measurements even with detectors of almost table-top size. An example is the ArgoNeuT detector, the first LArTPC in a neutrino beam in the US, which has provided valuable insight into how neutrinos interact and the workings of a liquid argon detector in a medium energy neutrino beam. The ArgoNeuT cryostat and TPC are now being reused as the LArIAT detector which aims to expand our understanding of LAr technology even further by running on a charged particle beam in Fermilab. In this talk I will present the results for ArgoNeuT and LArIAT and their context in the US-based liquid argon neutrino programme.

Lorentz violation has been shown to occur in Planck scale physics. Since neutrino oscillation experiments are natural interferometers, they may be sensitive to small space-time effect, such as Lorentz violation. The sensitivity is comparable to precision optical measurements (10E-19 GeV). Thus, neutrino oscillations may be the first place where we see Lorentz and CPT violation. The MiniBooNE neutrino oscillation experiment published electron and anti-electron neutrino appearance oscillation results that cannot be understood within the accepted three-massive-neutrinos oscillation model. In this talk, I will introduce Lorentz violation and Lorentz violating neutrino oscillations. And I examine whether the MiniBooNE data may be explained through a Lorentz violation model. Then, I will discuss Lorentz violation analysis results on Double Chooz reactor oscillation experiment. Finally, I will show a future prospective of the best Lorentz violation test on the neutrino sector through the astrophysical very high-energy neutrinos at IceCube.
