NOvA is a long baseline neutrino experiment based at Fermilab that studies neutrino oscillation parameters via electron neutrino appearance and muon neutrino disappearance. The oscillation measurements compare the Far Detector data to an oscillated prediction which accounts for the Near Detector (ND) data and our understanding of neutrino interactions and cross-sections by using GENIE simulation. ...

The long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment named NOvA is comprised of two detectors utilizing liquid scintillator tracking calorimeters. Both are positioned 14 mrad off-axis with respect to the NuMI beam with the near detector being at Fermilab. The far detector, at 14 kton, can be found approximately 810 km away in Ash River, Minnesota. The main physics goals of NOvA include, but are not l ... More

NOvA continues as one of the leading long-baseline neutrino experiments, thanks to Fermilab's powerful 700 kW NuMI beam, which provides NOvA with a beam of predominantly muon neutrinos or antineutrinos. NOvA studies neutrino oscillations using two detectors, both constructed from plastic extrusions filled with liquid scintillator, placed 810 km apart and both slightly off-axis from the beam c ...

Type: Oral Session: Tuesday Afternoon I
NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino experiment with two functionally identical liquid scintillator detectors 809 km apart, off-axis from the NuMI beam. The main goal of this experiment is to determine the mass hierarchy and precise measurement of several neutrino oscillation parameters. To measure these parameters precisely we need to have a correct estimate of the neutrino and antineutrino compositi ... More

Deep learning has aided the NOvA experiment in selection of NuMI beam neutrino events. Low statistics makes enhancements in signal efficiency especially critical to the success of the NOvA analysis. Use of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for event and particle identification has led to significant gains in signal efficiency for neutrino event selection while also reducing the complexity of th ...

Muon monitors are a very important diagnostic tool for the NOvA experiment at Fermilab. With the MINOS experiment decommissioned, MM are the only detectors to indicate and help mitigate the issues with the NuMI beam. The goal of our study is to maintain the quality of the MM signal and to establish the neutrino beam profile and MM signal correlations. This study could also inform the LBNF decision ... More

Type: Oral Session: Tuesday Afternoon I
NOvA is a two-detector long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment which aims to make a determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy, the octant of ${\theta}_{23}$, and measure possible CP violation. The NOvA Test Beam program consists of a scaled-down NOvA detector placed in a beamline capable of delivering 0.3 - 2.0 GeV/c protons, electrons, pions, and kaons. The beamline detectors provide us ... More
