Abstract: The ARAPUCA is a novel technology for the detection of liquid argon scintillation light, which has been proposed for the far detector of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment. The X-ARAPUCA is an improvement to the original ARAPUCA design, retaining the original ARAPUCA concept of photon trapping inside a highly reflective box while using a wavelength shifting slab inside the box to increase the probability of collecting trapped photons onto a silicon photomultiplier array. The X-ARAPUCA concept is presented and its performances are compared to those of a standard ARAPUCA by means of analytical calculations and Monte Carlo simulations.
