Abstract:
The NuMI Off-Axis Nu_e Appearance (NOvA) experiment is a next generation long-baseline, accelerator-based neutrino oscillation experiment, currently under construction at Fermilab and northern Minnesota. It is optimized for the measurement of nu_mu to nu_e appearance. Precise measurements of theta_13 are achieved by comparing electron neutrino rates observed by two totally active liquid scintillator detectors, located 14 mrad off the NuMI neutrino beam axis. Running a NuMI facility upgraded to 700 kW of beam power in neutrino and anti-neutrino modes, on an 810 km long baseline, NOvA can establish the neutrino mass hierarchy, will pioneer searches for CP violation in the leptonic sector and measure the octant of the theta_23 mixing angle. In this talk, we describe the goals and status of the NOvA experiment and present initial data from the Far Detector.
