Experiment NOvA

[group’s webpage] [experiment webpage]

NOνA is a particle physics experiment designed to detect neutrinos in Fermilab’s NuMI beam. Intended to be the successor to MINOS, NOνA consists of two detectors, one at Fermilab (the near detector), and one in northern Minnesota (the far detector). Neutrinos from NuMI pass through 810 km of Earth to reach the far detector. NOνA’s main goal is to observe the oscillation of muon neutrinos to electron neutrinos.
