Abstract:
The NOvA long-baseline neutrino experiment consists of two highly active, finely segmented, liquid scintillator detectors located 14.6 mrad off Fermilab's NuMI beam. It consists of a Near Detector located at Fermilab, and a Far Detector located in Ash River, MI, 810 km from the neutrino source. I will present NOvA’s first neutrino oscillation results, including an analysis of both the rate of electron neutrino appearing and the rate of muon neutrinos disappearing in the NuMI beam. The measurement of the electron neutrino appearance rate provides NOvA with sensitivity to the neutrino mass ordering and the amount of CP violation in the neutrino sector.
