PROSPECT

Jim Napolitano (Rennselaer Polytechnic)


Abstract

PROSPECT is the Precision Oscillation and Spectrum measurement of electron antineutrinos from the the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We are carrying out a high statistics measurement of the HFIR neutrino spectrum shape, in a finely segmented detector that will be sensitive to sterile neutrino oscillations at the 1eV mass scale. First data will be taken in the Spring of 2018.
