Neutrino oscillations at the wrong location?

Neutrino oscillations, discovered 25 years ago, break the Standard Model of particle physics and have been the subject of much investigation.To further study neutrino oscillation, Fermilab’s Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) program has three detectors in the beam, placed at three very different distances to research if neutrinos are changing as a function of distance.

To determine whether sterile neutrinos exist, researchers at Fermilab have constructed two new detectors as part of the Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) Program that they hope will resolve the situation once and for all.

A new 20,000-pound particle detection system built for a neutrino experiment will be transported 3 miles across the Fermilab campus today. About the size of a small house, it will be the heart of the Short-Baseline Near Detector at Fermilab.

From Pesquisa, November 2020: The FAPESP scientific director shares how he encouraged behaviors that helped improve research in São Paulo. With FAPESP encouragement, researchers in Brazil have held leadership positions in international collaborations, including in a photon detection system called Arapuca. Arapuca is a technology used in Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Near Detector and a baseline technology for the international Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment, hosted by Fermilab.
