Long-baseline Neutrino Oscillation at the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment

by Elisabeth Worcester




The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is a multinational effort hosted by Fermilab to address some of the biggest open questions in particle physics, particularly the question of whether charge-parity symmetry is violated in neutrino oscillation. DUNE will make precise measurements of the parameters governing long-baseline neutrino oscillation by observing an intense neutrino beam with a near detector complex onsite at Fermilab and a massive, underground far detector located ~1300 km away at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota. DUNE will also be sensitive to supernova burst neutrinos and signatures of physics beyond the Standard Model, including baryon number non-conservation. In this seminar, the simulation-based analysis of DUNE's sensitivity to long-baseline neutrino oscillation will be described. This analysis includes an end-to-end analysis of far detector Monte Carlo, a parameterized analysis of near detector Monte Carlo, and a detailed treatment of individual sources of systematic uncertainty. Estimates of DUNE sensitivity to determination of the neutrino mass ordering, discovery of CP violation in neutrino oscillation, and precision measurements of long-baseline oscillation parameters will be presented.
