New Results from the MINOS Experiment

(University of Cambridge)

The MINOS experiment is a two-detector long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment utilizing the Fermilab NuMI neutrino beam. In 2010, we have completed several exciting new analyses. I will discuss the search for electron neutrino appearance in the MINOS detector. This analysis aims to measure or set a new limit on the as-yet-unmeasured mixing angle theta13. The results of this study, as well as future analysis plans, will be discussed. The talk will also discuss the other major MINOS analyses, including the precision measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters, an investigation of neutrino/antineutrino differences, and a search for sterile neutrinos.
