"Determining the Neutrino Mixing Angle Theta13 with the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plants"

Presented by Kam-Biu Luk, U.C. - Berkeley

Friday, November 4, 2005, 9:30 am — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Besides being a fundamental constant of Nature, the unknown neutrino mixing angle theta_13 will determine whether we can explore CP violation in the lepton sector, which holds the promise of explaining the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe. The Daya Bay nuclear power plants in China have been identified as an excellent site for
mounting an experiment for determining sin^2(2theta_13) with
a sensitivity to 0.01, using electron antineutrinos from the reactors. The status of the Daya Bay experiment will be presented.
