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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Quantifying the sensitivity of oscillation experiments to the neutrino mass ordering
Determining the type of the neutrino mass ordering ( normal versus inverted) is one of the most important open questions in neutrino physics. In this paper we clarify the statistical interpretation of sensitivity calculations ...
Reassessing the sensitivity to leptonic CP violation
We address the validity of the usual procedure to determine the sensitivity of neutrino oscillation experiments to CP violation. An explicit calibration of the test statistic is performed through Monte Carlo simulations ...
Constraining non-standard interactions of the neutrino with Borexino
We use the Borexino 153.6 ton·year data to place constraints on non-standard neutrino-electron interactions, taking into account the uncertainties in the 7Be solar neutrino flux and the mixing angle θ 23, and backgrounds ...
Analytical approximation of the neutrino oscillation matter effects at large theta (13)
Probing non-standard interactions at Daya Bay
In this article we consider the presence of neutrino non-standard interactions (NSI) in the production and detection processes of reactor antineutrinos at the Daya Bay experiment. We report for the first time, the new ...
