Designing a 3.8-GeV/c muon-decay ring and experiment sensitive to electronvolt-scale sterile neutrinos

Abstract:

The liquid-scintillator neutrino-detector (LSND) and mini booster neutrino experiment (MiniBooNE) experiments claim to observe the oscillation ῡµ→ ῡe, which can only be explained by additional neutrinos and is a claim that must be further tested. This thesis proposes a new accelerator and experiment called νSTORM to refute or confirm the oscillation these claims by studying the CPT-equivalent channel νe→νµ. A 3.8-GeV/c muon decay ring is propose...
