MiniBooNE First Results on a Search for νe Appearance at the Δm2 ∼ 1 eV2 Scale

  • Michel Sorel
Conference paper

Abstract

Solar and atmospheric neutrino oscillations, recently confirmed by reactor and accelerator-based experiments, are now well established. On the other hand, the interpretation of the LSND \( \bar v_e \) excess [1] as \( \bar v_\mu \to \bar v_e \) oscillations at the Δm 2 ∼ 1 eV2 scale lacked for many years experimental confirmation or refutation. The primary goal of the MiniBooNE experiment [2] is to address this anomaly in an unambiguous and independent way.
