Description

MINOS+ began operation in September 2013 as an extension of the MINOS experiment, and extends the study of neutrino oscillations as well as the search for exotic physics such as flavor changing non-standard interactions (NSI) over a baseline of 735 km. To date MINOS+ has reported the most precise measurement of neutrino oscillations in the atmospheric sector from a three-neutrino flavor analysis of the full $14.3 \times 10^{20}$ PoT MINOS era beam sample combined with the full MINOS and MINOS+ atmospheric neutrino samples. MINOS/MINOS+ is able to separately produce well understood beams enriched in neutrinos and antineutrinos and to identify neutrinos and antineutrinos on an event-by-event basis in its magnetized detectors. This allows sensitive searches for NSI in the mu-tau and e-tau sectors. We present preliminary results using the full MINOS beam data set.
