Time: 2:00 pm
Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Adam Schreckenberger, Univ. of Texas-Austin
Abstract: <br>
MINOS (Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search) is a long-baseline neutrino experiment that utilizes the Fermilab-based NuMI beam and two steel-scintillator tracking calorimeters to detect neutrino oscillation. Multivariate techniques allow the MINOS and MINOS+ col- laborations to exploit the νμ → νe dataset to produce limits on θ13, the CP-violating phase (δCP ), Non-Standard Interactions (NSI), and sterile neutrino oscillation parameters. Results encompassing standard three-flavor νe appearance and NSI are presented along with recent analysis developments regarding a sterile neutrino search in MINOS+.
