Three-flavor neutrino oscillations in NOvA

Dr Erika Catano Mur (William & Mary)


NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment, which consists of two finely-segmented liquid-scintillator detectors operating 14.6 mrad off-axis from Fermilab’s NuMI muon neutrino beam. With an 810 km baseline, the measurements of muon neutrino disappearance and electron neutrino appearance allow the determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy, the octant of the largest neutrino mixing angle, and the CP violating phase.
In this poster, we summarize NOvA’s most recent 3-flavor oscillation results, based on the combined analysis of neutrino and anti-neutrino datasets with an exposure of ~13e20 protons-on-target in each beam mode. We also discuss the experiment’s projected sensitivities to determine the mass hierarchy, and to discover CP violation in the neutrino sector, with the full expected exposure.
