Abstract:
The NOvA experiment has started taking data the Near Detector placed in a surface building in November 2010. The far detector of the NOνA long baseline experiment is currently under construction and will be located in Ash River, 810 km away from Femilab and 14 mrad off the beam axis. The totally active scintiallator detector is designed to identify electron neutrinos that result from the oscillation of beam muon neutrinos. The narrow neutrino beam will be provided by the upgraded NUMI beamline at Fermilab. Among main goals of the NOvA experiment are precise measurement of the values of the atmospheric neutrino oscillations, determining the value of the theta13 mixing angle and subsequently the CP violation effect enhanced by the matter effects. The far detector in Northern Minnesota will also be sensitive to neutrinos from supernova. The current status of the experiment will be presented as well as the planned schedule for completion of remaining crucial elements of the project. I will present physics program for the NOvA experiment and preliminary data obtained with the prototype detector.
