Abstract: G02.00002 : Prospects for long-baseline neutrino physics in the 2020s
9:06 AM–9:42 AM
NOvA, T2K, DUNE
In this talk, I will review the latest results from the NOvA and the T2K experiments, providing a snapshot of the accelerator-based neutrino oscillation measurements. With these experiments continuing to collect high-quality data into the latter half of the decade, the statistical uncertainty will be reduced and certain physics milestones might be within reach. The NOvA and T2K collaborations are also working on a combined joint-fit of their data which will not only provide a significantly tighter statistical constraint but will also be useful for breaking degeneracies in the individual measurements. I will discuss the status and plans for the joint analysis of the most recent NOvA and T2K data.
Long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments are poised to make new discoveries over the coming decade. The next generation of experiments, such as DUNE, are scheduled to start running towards the end of this decade. They will be well-positioned to make a high-significance measurement of charge-parity violation in the neutrino sector within a few years of data-taking. This talk will outline the current landscape of long-baseline neutrino oscillation measurements and lay out the path for how it might develop through the rest of this decade.
