Poster Neutrino Physics Poster Session


Adam Schreckenberger (University of Texas at Austin)


The MINOS experiment made precision measurements of the neutrino
oscillation parameters that are governed by the atmospheric
mass-squared splitting. These measurements were made with data that
were collected while the NuMI muon neutrino beam operated in a low
energy mode that peaks around 3 GeV. Today the NuMI beam is running
with a higher energy mode that produces a neutrino energy spectrum
that peaks around 7 GeV, allowing the MINOS+ experiment to probe
neutrino oscillation phenomena that could potentially be governed by a
fourth mass-squared splitting. If observed, the presence of a fourth
mass-squared splitting would be compelling evidence for a sterile
neutrino state. In this analysis, we will present the results of a
search for $\nu_\mu$ $\rightarrow$ $\nu_e$ oscillation mediated by
sterile neutrinos in MINOS+. The results will be contrasted against
the measurements made by the LSND experiment.
