Description

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment utilizes three pairs of powerful nuclear reactors as anti-neutrino sources, and employes eight functionally identical detectors with large target volume for near-far relative measurement. The detectors were placed underground with mountains to provide enough shielding for cosmic rays induced background reduction.
Now, the experiment has achieved unprecedented precision in measuring θ13 and the neutrino mass squared difference |Δm2ee|. The experiment can also perform a high-statistics determination of the absolute reactor antineutrino flux and spectrum, as well as a search for light sterile neutrino. An overview and the most recent results from Daya Bay will be presented.
