Event Details

Experimental observations have established that neutrinos undergo flavor oscillations as they propagate due to quantum mechanical mixing between the mass states and flavor states. The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has observed the disappearance of electron-type antineutrinos from nuclear reactor cores at the Daya Bay nuclear power complex located in China. This observation has allowed Daya Bay to make the world’s most precise measurement of the neutrino mixing angle theta-13. DUNE is a next-generation neutrino oscillation experiment that is being designed to address the remaining questions in the three-neutrino mixing model. The project will consist of the Fermilab Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) and a large liquid argon TPC detector located at Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota. In this talk, I will present the most recent results from Daya Bay and the experimental design and physics prospects for DUNE.
