Large theta_13 and future long baseline experiments
TH Theory Conference Room (CERN)
TH Theory Conference Room
In the coming years, many experiments will improve the bounds on and possible find a positive signature for the small neutrino mixing angle theta13. New reactor experiments, DoubleCHOOZ and Daya Bay, as well accelerator neutrino experiments, MINOS and T2K, will have very soon a sensitivity by a factor 2-3 better then the present bound. If a positive signal is found, the possibility to search for matter effects and CP-violation in the leptonic sector will open. In this talk, I will discuss the relevant phenomenological issues and various experimental strategies for long baseline neutrino experiments aimed at these searches. In particular I will highlight how such scenario might require different experimental setups with respect to the case of very small mixing angle theta13.
