Description

The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a 20 kton liquid scintillator detector scheduled to come online in 2024 with a main physics goal of precisely measuring reactor antineutrino oscillations. JUNO is located at a distance of 53 km from eight nuclear reactors in Southern China. The detector will be instrumented by 17,612 20-inch and 25,600 3-inch photomultiplier tubes, resulting in over 75% photocoverage. This design alongside a careful control of systematics is expected to achieve a 3% energy resolution at 1 MeV, allowing a measurement of $sin^2\Theta_{12}$, $\Delta m^2_{21}$, and $\Delta m^2_{32}$ to sub-percent precision. Furthermore, JUNO will be able to determine the neutrino mass ordering to 3$\sigma$ with ~6 years of data-taking. This talk will describe JUNO’s expected measurements in neutrino oscillations with reactor antineutrinos and report the most recent sensitivities.
