Mass Varying Neutrinos (MaVaN's) mechanisms were proposed to link the neutrino mass scale with the dark energy density, addressing the coincidence problem. In some scenarios this mass can present a dependence on the baryonic density felt by neutrinos, creating an effective neutrino mass that depends both on the neutrino and baryonic densities. In this work we study the phenomenological...

With the ongoing construction, commissioning and proposals of new detectors and intensive R&D efforts, liquid argon Time Projection Chambers (TPCs) are starting to become a crucial technology in the US neutrino program. Their scope of use in the near and more distant future covers such urgent problems in weak interaction physics as the search for sterile neutrinos, the neutrino mass hierarchy...

MINOS is a two-detector on-axis experiment based at Fermilab. The NuMI neutrino beam encounters the MINOS Near Detector 1 km downstream before travelling 734 km through the Earth's crust, to reach the Far Detector located at the Soudan Underground Laboratory in Northern Minnesota. By searching for oscillations driven by a large mass splitting, MINOS is sensitive to the existence of sterile...
