Neutrino oscillations have first been observed almost 20 years ago, yet some fundamental parameters of the oscillation mechanism still need precise measurements. Do muon and tau neutrinos maximally mix? What is the neutrino mass ordering, normal or inverted? Is there CP violation in the lepton sector, and could this explain the matter/anti-matter asymmetry in the universe?
The NOvA experiment aims to answer these questions and much more. Muon neutrinos are produced at Fermilab in Illinois, and directed 810km towards a mine in Minnesota, where our far detector measures the disappearance of muon neutrinos and the appearance of electron neutrinos. This talk will present the latest exciting results coming from the NOvA experiment!

Notes and Changes:
This seminar was given on June 30th 2017 at CalPoly to a mixed audience of undergraduate students and academics.
I used a very similar set of slides for another seminar the week before that at the Center of Cosmology and Astro Particle Physics at OSU.
