Abstract:
The NuMI Off-Axis electron-neutrino Appearance (NOvA) experiment is a second generation, long-baseline, neutrino oscillation experiment. It consists of two finely segmented, liquid scintillator detectors operating at 14 mrad off-axis from the NuMI muon neutrino beam. The smaller (300 ton) Near Detector is located underground at Fermilab, and it is used to study the neutrino beam spectrum and composition before oscillations; while the 14,000 ton Far Detector, situated on the surface 810 km away, observes the oscillated beam. The measurements of muon neutrino disappearance and electron neutrino appearance potentially allow the extraction of neutrino oscillation unknowns, namely the mass hierarchy, the octant of the largest neutrino mixing angle, and the CP violating phase.  In this talk, I will describe the current status of the NOvA experiment and present the latest results of the neutrino oscillation analyses from two years of data taking.
