Old NOvA Note 13 - On Siting the Offaxis Detector (Originally posted 13Aug2003) Physics considerations that contribute to the determination of the optimal site for the offaxis NuMI experiment Far Detector are examined. More specifically, 2 US and 2 Canadian locations are looked at. Of these four, the “Fort Frances” Canadian location at about 850m km distance appears optimal. The loss of sensitivity due to a choice of non-optimal transverse location appears relatively minimal: a deviation of up to 2 km from optimum position results in few percent loss in figure of merit value. There is a similar loss in sensitivity if one chooses a transverse location that is optimized for a value of Dm2 13 up to +-0.5 x 10-3 eV2 away from the true value.
