The European Spallation Source neutrino Super Beam ESSνSB

Not scheduled
Neutrino physics (accelerator and non-accelerator)


The European Spallation Source linear proton accelerator will have a uniquely high beam power of 5 MW to be used for spallation neutron production. The beam power can be raised to 10 MW by increasing the accelerator duty cycle from 4% to 8% and the additional 5 MW used to generate a uniquely intense neutrino Super Beam ESSνSB for measurement of leptonic CP violation. ESSνSB is complementary to other proposed Super Beam experiments by the fact that the resulting high neutrino-beam intensity makes it possible to locate the large water Cherenkov neutrino detector that will be used, at the second neutrino oscillation maximum, making the performance of ESSνSB for leptonic CP violation precision measurements highly competitive.
