Description

LBNE (Long-Baseline Neutrino Experiment) is an accelerator-based neutrino oscillation experiment. LBNE will produce a muon-neutrino beam using protons from Fermilab's Main Injector and will detect electron-neutrino appearance and muon-neutrino disappearance using a Liquid Argon TPC located at a distance of 1300 km at Sanford Underground Research Facility in South Dakota. The primary physics motivation of LBNE is to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy, to determine the octant of the neutrino mixing angle theta_23, to search for CP violation in neutrino oscillation, and ultimately, to precisely measure the size of any CP-violating effect that is discovered. I will describe the status of LBNE, the first phase of which is currently in the detailed-design stage of planning, and the physics potential of the LBNE research program.
