New Results for Electron-Neutrino Appearance in MINOS

Abstract: MINOS is a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment designed to
make precision measurements of the neutrino mixing parameters
associated with the atmospheric neutrino mass splitting. Using a
neutrino beam from the Main Injector (NuMI) facility at Fermilab, it
compares the neutrino energy spectrum for charged current muon
neutrino interactions observed in two large detectors located at
Fermilab and in the Soudan mine in northern Minnesota at a distance
of 735km. The MINOS Collaboration has? published the world?s best
measurement of the atmospheric mass scale by studying muon neutrino
disappearance. It has also studied the possibility of muon neutrinos
oscillating into sterile neutrinos. Beyond summarizing these recently
published results, I will focus on describing our new results on
electron neutrino appearance in MINOS after three years of
