PROSPECT: A Precision Reactor Neutrino Oscillation and Spectrum Experiment

Presented by Prof. Karsten HEEGER
Type: Poster
Session: Poster Session I
Track: Reactor Neutrino Oscillations
Board #: 146


Experiments near reactors provide an excellent opportunity to study neutrino oscillations and measure the flux and spectrum of antineutrinos from fission products in the reactor core. PROSPECT is a precision reactor neutrino experiment at short baselines of ~5-20m near a US research reactor. The goal of the experiment is to search for short-baseline oscillation, probe the reactor anomaly, and make a measurement of the antineutrino spectrum from a highly enriched uranium core. We will describe the design and experimental strategy of PROSPECT along with its sensitivity and physics potential.
