Heavy Quarks & Leptons New Experiments


Daniel Cronin-Hennessy (University of Minnesota)


The NOvA experiment, now nearing completion, is a new long-baseline neutrino experiment that will use an upgraded NuMI neutrino source at Fermilab and a 14-kton detector at Ash River, Minnesota. NOvA uses a highly active, finely segmented detector design that offers superb event identification capability, allowing precision measurements of electron (anti-)neutrino appearance and muon (anti-)neutrino disappearance. Through these, NOvA will provide new measurements of theta_13, theta_23, the atmospheric mass splitting, the neutrino mass hierarchy, and the CP-violating phase. This talk reviews the experiment's construction and operation timeline.
