Description

The NOvA experiment is a long-baseline accelerator based neutrino oscillation experiment. It uses the upgraded NuMI beam from Fermilab and measures electron neutrino appearance and muon neutrino disappearance at its Far Detector in Ash River, Minnesota. The NuE appearance analysis at NOvA aims for resolving mass hierarchy and the CP violating phase. This talk will present first results from NOvA’s electron appearance analysis. The first task of the NuE appearance analysis is to identify electron neutrino events from various backgrounds. This talk will also review major particle identification and event reconstruction techniques for the NuE appearance analysis at NOvA experiment.
