"Measuring the Neutrino Theta_13 with Double Chooz"

Presented by John LoSecco, University of Notre Dame

Thursday, March 24, 2005, 11:00 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

A reactor anti-neutrino disappearance experiment with two or more detectors is one of the most efficient ways to extend our reach for the neutrino mixing angle theta_13 without ambiguities from CP violation and matter effects. Double Chooz is a experiment designed to reach a sensitivity of sin^2(2*theta_13) < 0.03 in a three year run, 2008-2011. This would cover roughly 85% of the remaining allowed region. The costs and time to first results can be minimized since this project takes advantage of an exiting infrastructure.
