A precision measurement of nu _mu disappearance in the T2K experiment

Abstract:

T2K is a long-baseline accelerator neutrino oscillation experiment using the high-intensity νμ beam produced at J-PARC. Sitting 295 km away, the giant Super-Kamiokande detector, a 50 kt water tank instrumented with 11,129 photosensitive detectors, sees a narrow band beam peaked at 600 MeV. The baseline to energy ratio is finely tuned for studying neutrino oscillations at the atmospheric neutrino squared-mass splitting. The beam is also sampled 280m downstream of the neutrino pro...
