Description

The DAEdALUS program seeks to construct a number of high power cyclotrons for neutrino physics. The first step in the phased program, IsoDAR, will combine a high power, low energy cyclotron with a liquid scintillator based detector in order to, among other measurements, directly probe the experimental anomalies often attributed to neutrino oscillations involving one or more light sterile neutrinos. I will provide an update on the overall DAEdALUS effort with a focus on the progress towards constructing the 60 MeV/nucleon IsoDAR accelerator.
