Description
Theia is a potential multi-purpose, large-scale neutrino detector in its very early design stages. It aims to utilize water-based liquid scintillator or lightly-doped oil as a detector medium coupled with very fast timing to study a broad physics program. Its prospects include the capability to detect and measure neutrinos over a very broad energy spectrum, with the potential to deduce the hierarchical nature of neutrinos, measure the level of CP violation in the lepton sector and potentially determine whether the neutrino is Majorana in nature. Furthermore, Theia will be able to study neutrinos from multiple sources including the Fermilab LBNF beam, atmospheric neutrinos, the Earth, the Sun, galactic supernovae, and the diffuse flux of cosmological supernova neutrinos.
