Description

We report a conceptual design of Reactor Experiment for Neutrinos and Exotics (RENE), which primarily aims to search for the sterile neutrino oscillation at $\Delta m_{41}^2 \sim 2 eV^2$.
The joint study of RENO and NEOS experiments showed a hint for the sterile neutrinos at $\Delta m_{41}^2 \sim 2.4 eV^2$ and $\sim 1.7 eV^2$, which overlap with the allowed region by the Reactor Anti-neutrino Anomaly.
This RENE detector can also be used for precision measurements of the flux and spectrum of the reactor electron antineutrino ($\bar{\nu_e}$) and the separation of $\bar{\nu_e}$ spectra from $^{235}U$ and $^{239}Pu$.
In this poster, we report the concept of the RENE detector and physics cases.
