In this joint MiniBooNE-SciBooNE analysis, the experiments have excluded the area to the right of the 90 percent confidence level limit curve (blue) as a region where muon antineutrino disappearance may be occurring. This significantly narrows down the oscillation region for sterile neutrinos. The conventional picture of neutrinos involves three types: the electron neutrino (and antineutrino), the muon (anti)neutrino, and the tau (anti)neutrino. As they zip through matter or space, the three types, or flavors, continually morph into each other…
