Description

NOvA is an accelerator neutrino oscillation experiment designed to make precise measurements of the neutrino mixing parameters associated with the atmospheric mass-squared splitting. By studying oscillations along a 810 km baseline, NOvA has the potential to produce measurements that are sensitive to the neutrino mass hierarchy and to the values of theta13 and the CP-violating phase. In addition, NOvA may potentially answer the question of whether theta23 is non-maximal by performing a precision measurement of the value of theta23. A discussion of how NOvA is sensitive to theses terms and the estimated precision to which these terms can be measured will be presented.
