Combining dark matter detectors and electron-capture sources to hunt for new physics in the neutrino sector
In this letter we point out the possibility to study new physics in the neutrino sector using dark matter detectors based on liquid xenon. These are characterized by very good spatial resolution and extremely low thresholds ...
Measurement of time-dependent CP violation in B 0 → η′K 0 decays
We present a measurement of the time-dependent CP violation parameters in B0 -> eta'K-0 decays. The measurement is based on the full data sample containing 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs collected at the Upsilon(4S) ...
Searching for sterile neutrinos at the ESSνSB
The ESS nu SB project is a proposed neutrino oscillation experiment based on the European Spallation Source with the search for leptonic CP violation as its main aim. In this letter we show that a near detector at around ...
Physics Performance of a Low-Luminosity Low Energy Neutrino Factory
(American Physical Society, 2013-08-08)
We investigate the minimal performance, in terms of beam luminosity and detector size, of a neutrino factory to achieve a competitive physics reach for the determination of the mass hierarchy and the discovery of leptonic ...
Observation of Electron-Antineutrino Disappearance at Daya Bay
(American Physical Society, 2012-04-23)
The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has measured a nonzero value for the neutrino mixing angle 0(13) with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. Antineutrinos from six 2.9 GW(th) reactors were detected in six ...
Neutrinos: What are They Good For?

New constraints on heavy neutral leptons from Super-Kamiokande data
Heavy neutral leptons are predicted in many extensions of the Standard Model with massive neutrinos. If kinematically accessible, they can be copiously produced from kaon and pion decays in atmospheric showers, and ...
Higgs inflation, vacuum stability, and leptogenesis
We consider the introduction of a complex scalar field carrying a global lepton number charge to the Standard Model and the Higgs inflation framework. The conditions are investigated under which this model can simultaneously ...
A novel segmented-scintillator antineutrino detector
The next generation of very-short-baseline reactor experiments will require compact detectors operating at surface level and close to a nuclear reactor. This paper presents a new detector concept based on a composite solid ...
Searches for decays of new particles in the DUNE Multi-Purpose near Detector
One proposed component of the upcoming Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) near detector complex is a multi-purpose, magnetized, gaseous argon time projection chamber: the Multi-Purpose Detector (MPD). We explore ...
