The Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (INPP) presents Ornella Palamara, of the Fermilab and Yale University, presenting “Three Detector Short-baseline Neutrino Oscillation Program in the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam,” on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at at 4 p.m. in Edwards Accelerator Lab, Roger W. Finlay Conference Room.

Abstract: The Fermilab Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) physics program with three Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (BAr-TPC) detectors located along the Booster Neutrino Beam (BNB) will deliver a rich and compelling physics opportunity, including the ability to resolve a class of experimental anomalies in neutrino physics and to perform the most sensitive search to date for sterile neutrinos at the eV2 mass-scale, through both appearance and disappearance oscillation channels.  The Micro BooNE LAr-TPC experiment is in the commissioning phase. By 2018, the MicroBooNE detector will be joined by two additional LAr-TPC detectors, the Short-Baseline Near Detector (SBND) and the ICARUS-T600 detector, to form the three detectors program.  The SBN program will perform a search for νµ→νe appearance covering with 5σ sensitivity  the LSND allowed (99% C.L.) region.
