NOvA In 10 Minutes

• Justin VASEL

Content

NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment which uses the NuMI neutrino beam at Fermilab. Our detectors are functionally-similar liquid scintillator calorimeters, situated 810km apart and 14 mrad off-axis with respect to the the NuMI beam. NOvA's primarily physics goal is a measurement of electron neutrino appearance and muon neutrino disappearance from a muon neutrino beam to constrain mass ordering, $\Delta m^2_{23}$, the $\theta_{23}$ octant, and $\delta_{CP}$. Sterile neutrino searches are also underway. In this talk, I will present an overview of the NOvA experiment and summarize recent results.
