NOvA is a second generation experiment focused on the study of
electron neutrino appearance in a muon neutrino beam. NOvA will
utilize a totally active, segmented, liquid scintillator detector
located off the Fermilab NuMI beam axis. The project includes
upgrades of the NuMI facility from 400 kW maximum power to 700 kW.
NOvA will extend the search for electron neutrino appearance by more
than an order of magnitude beyond current limits and make precise
measurements of muon neutrino disappearance. The long baseline
provides sensitivity to the neutrino mass hierarchy and NOvA's running
plan includes both neutrino and anti-neutrino beams beginning the
search for CP violation in the neutrino sector. Construction of the
detector will begin in 2009 and be completed in 2014. First data is
expected in 2012.
