Gotta catch ’em all: new NOvA results with neutrinos and antineutrinos

Categories: Intensity Frontier
Published on: November 27, 2019
Fermilab’s NOvA neutrino experiment studies neutrino oscillations using a powerful neutrino beam produced by the lab’s accelerator complex. The beam, made of muon neutrinos, is sent to NOvA’s two detectors — one located at Fermilab and one located about 800 kilometers away in Minnesota, pictured here.

NOvA’s latest measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters have been published in Physical Review Letters. The data were recorded between 2014 and 2019 and correspond to 8.85 x 1020 protons-on-target of neutrino beam and 12.33 x 1020 protons-on-target of antineutrino beam. This represents a 78% increase in the amount of antineutrino data compared to NOvA’s previous results, presented at the Neutrino 2018 conference.

The first appearance result at NOvA shows six events selected with our primary analysis and 11 with our secondary analysis, with an expected background of approximately one in each case.
