Search for massive neutrinos in the decay pi -> e nu
(American Physical Society, 2011-09-06)
Evidence of massive neutrinos in the pi(+) -> e(+)nu decay spectrum was sought with the background pi(+) -> mu(+) -> e(+) decay chain highly suppressed. Upper limits (90% C. L.) on the neutrino mixing matrix element vertical ...
Dark matter, infinite statistics, and quantum gravity
(American Physical Society, 2012-05-21)
We elaborate on our proposal regarding a connection between global physics and local galactic dynamics via quantum gravity. This proposal calls for the concept of MONDian dark matter which behaves like cold dark matter at ...
Systematic uncertainties in long-baseline neutrino oscillations for large theta(13)
(American Physical Society, 2013-02-11)
We study the physics potential of future long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiments at large theta(13), focusing especially on systematic uncertainties. We discuss superbeams, beta beams, and neutrino factories, and ...
Position and momentum uncertainties of the normal and inverted harmonic oscillators under the minimal length uncertainty relation
(American Physical Society, 2011-11-18)
We analyze the position and momentum uncertainties of the energy eigenstates of the harmonic oscillator in the context of a deformed quantum mechanics, namely, that in which the commutator between the position and momentum ...
First measurement of the muon antineutrino double-differential charged-current quasielastic cross section
(American Physical Society, 2013-08-02)
The largest sample ever recorded of (nu) over bar (mu) charged-current quasielastic (CCQE, (nu) over bar (mu) + p -> mu(+) + n) candidate events is used to produce the minimally model-dependent, flux-integrated double-differential ...
Reactor (nu)over-bar(e) disappearance in the Double Chooz experiment
(American Physical Society, 2012-09-18)
The Double Chooz experiment has observed 8249 candidate electron antineutrino events in 227.93 live days with 33.71 GW-ton-years (reactor power X detector mass X live time) exposure using a 10.3 m(3) fiducial volume detector ...
First test of Lorentz violation with a reactor-based antineutrino experiment
(American Physical Society, 2012-12-28)
We present a search for Lorentz violation with 8249 candidate electron antineutrino events taken by the Double Chooz experiment in 227.9 live days of running. This analysis, featuring a search for a sidereal time dependence ...
Direct measurement of backgrounds using reactor-off data in Double Chooz
(American Physical Society, 2013-01-08)
Double Chooz is unique among modern reactor-based neutrino experiments studying (nu) over bar (e) disappearance in that data can be collected with all reactors off. In this paper, we present data from 7.53 days of reactor-off ...
The Higgs mass and the emergence of new physics
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2013-07-23)
A method for measuring coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering at a far off-axis high-energy neutrino beam target
(American Physical Society, 2014-04-03)
We present a new experimental method for measuring the process of Coherent Elastic Neutrino Nucleus Scattering (CENNS). This method uses a detector situated transverse to a high energy neutrino beam production target. This ...
