The usage of optical information is ubiquitous in neutrino detectors, essential for spill-assignment, background suppression, and triggering. Enabling an independent and complete physics program at the ND-GAr component of DUNE’s near detector suite will undoubtedly benefit from this feature. We discuss in this presentation the prospects towards simultaneous readout of ionization and scintillation signals in ND-GAr and the R&D currently performed in this direction. In particular, we will focus on the scintillation of Ar-based mixtures at high pressure.
