Abstract:
The existence of light sterile neutrinos would have profound implications for both
particle physics and cosmology. The NOvA (NuMI Off-Axis ve Appearance) experiment is sensitive to new neutrino flavors through searches for disappearance of the known active neutrinos from the NuMI beam over a baseline of 810 km.
We describe the method used by NOvA to look for oscillations into sterile
neutrinos, with a focus on disappearance of neutral-current (NC) neutrino events. We present the results from the first NC Disappearance analysis using 6.05E20 POT of neutrino data, and discuss the status and outlook for ongoing and future sterile neutrino searches with NOvA, at both long and short baselines.
