Kevin Woods (Stoney Brook University) “Measuring neutrino oscillations with accelerator-based, long-baseline experiments”

January 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Accelerator-based, long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments are uniquely positioned to explore the CP-violating nature of the neutrino sector. This talk will briey discuss the experimental technique before surveying selected topics spanning both current and future generations of such experiments. First, the Bayesian Markov Chain Monte Carlo oscillation analysis of the T2K experiment, which has been accumulating data for the past 10 years, will be presented before discussing the ongoing efforts to extend the analysis framework to be used in a joint analysis between T2K and the NOA experiment at Fermilab. The experience obtained from these experiments already in the data taking stages has been and will continue to be invaluable in the design of future experiments, such as the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). The DUNE collaboration will employ the liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) technology at an unprecedented scale to measure neutrino interactions at its far site. The talk will conclude with an overview of the realization and operation of the protoDUNE-SP detector, a prototype for a DUNE far detector module, for a charged particle test beam run that took place at CERN in the end of 2018
