Description

MINOS is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment situated along Fermilab's high-intensity NuMI neutrino beam. MINOS has completed an updated search for muon neutrino to electron neutrino transitions, observation of which would indicate a non-zero value for the neutrino mixing angle theta_13. The present 7x10^20 protons-on-target data set represents more than double the exposure used in the previous analysis. The new result and its implications are presented.

Summary

Abstract for a poster for Neutrino 2010, from the MINOS nue appearance analysis group.
