"Neutrino mixing: What MINOS can say about theta13, the neutrino mass hierarchy, and CP violation in the lepton sector"

Presented by Gregory Pawloski, Stanford University

Thursday, February 4, 2010, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

ABSTRACT: MINOS is an accelerator neutrino oscillation experiment designed to make precise measurements of the neutrino mixing parameters associated precise measurements of the neutrino mixing parameters associated with the atmospheric mass-squared splitting. By studying oscillations along a 735 km baseline, there is potential to produce measurements that are sensitive to the neutrino mass hierarchy and the values of the CP-violating phase and theta13. The results from the MINOS electron neutrino appearance analysis will be presented, and its implications on the above parameters will be discussed.
