The double Chooz expeirment is one of the few experiements currently measuring the neutrino mixing angle téta 13 , and the only one located in Europe. It gathers 10 European universities and laboratories (Germany,France,Spain) and about 2à form USA,Russia , Japan and Brazil. The expeirment will update this year its 2012 results, with more statistics. The current data analysis will developp also the tagging of oscillation through neutron capture on H2. A combined analysis with the regular tagging through a capture on Gd is also being prepared. The neutrino direction measurement is in progress : Double Chooz has only 2 neighbouring reactors , which provides beams of neutrinos for such studies. In the same time, the near detector will be installed, to have a full experiement running in the Spring 2014, to wards a full experiment precision soon after.
