Current MINOS neutrino oscillation results

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The MINOS experiment is now making precise measurements of the νμ disappearance oscillations seen in atmospheric neutrinos, tests possible disappearance to sterile ν by measuring the neutral current flux, and has extended our reach towards the so far unseen θ13 by looking for νe appearance in the νμ beam. It does so by using the intense, well-understood NuMI neutrino beam created at Fermilab and observing it 735km away at the Soudan Mine in Northeast Minnesota. High-statistics studies of the neutrino interactions themselves and the cosmic rays seen by the MINOS detectors have also been made. Results from MINOS' first three years of operations will be presented.
