New results from NOvA
XXVII INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NEUTRINO PHYSICS AND ASTROPHYSICS (NEUTRINO2016)
The NOvA experiment at Fermilab uses a beam of neutrinos and two detectors separated by an 810 km baseline to observe muon neutrino disappearance and electron neutrino appearance. These measurements have the potential to reveal the remaining unknowns in neutrino oscillations, namely the mass hierarchy, the theta(23) octant, and perhaps even hint at the violation of CP in the neutrino sector. This paper describes the current status of the NOvA experiment and present results from two years of data taking, doubling the exposure of our initial results.
