First protoDUNE Photon Detectors Shipped to CERN

The first 12 photon detector modules have been shipped to CERN to be installed into the protoDUNE single-phase prototype Time Projection Chamber (TPC). The shipped photon detectors will instrument the first of 6 TPC cells (with 2 spares remaining). The photon detectors, the optical components of which come from Fermilab and Indiana University, were assembled …

NOvA appearance and disappearance results submitted for publication.

NOvA’s latest appearance and disappearance results, corresponding to 6.05E20 POT) hav e been submitted for publication. Both results are posted to the HEP archives ( https://arxiv.org/pdf/1701.05891.pdf and https://arxiv.org/pdf/1703.03328.pdf ). The results utilize the first two years of neutrino (forward horn current) operation. The appearance results show a slight preference for normal mass hierarchy and delta_CP …

NOvA First Appearance Measurement Published

The first electron neutrino appearance measurement made by the NOvA collaboration has been published. The analysis is based on the observation of 6 events detected in the NOvA far detector given an exposure of 2.74E20 protons on target. The analysis disfavors 0.1pi < delta_CP < 0.5pi in the inverted mass hierarchy at a 90% C.L. …
