Description

The IceCube Neutrino Observatory is a cubic-km size detector consisting
of 5000 light sensors buried within the ice of the South Pole. Together
with its inner array DeepCore (which has a lower energy threshold of ~
5GeV), IceCube detects neutrinos of all flavours by recording the
Cherenkov light emitted by both neutral and charged current interactions
within the ice. Given its ~GigaTon detection volume and sensitivity to a
wide range of energies and baselines, IceCube is well suited to perform
neutrino oscillation measurements, using neutrinos produced by cosmic
rays in the atmosphere.

Neutrino oscillation is an important probe for exploring the limits of
current paradigms in particle physics, and offers an experimental handle
to find evidence for new physics. IceCube does so by performing
precision measurements of the properties of oscillations, such as muon
neutrino disappearance and tau neutrino appearance. It can also probe
the neutrino mass ordering, and test multiple theoretical predictions of
new physics, such as the existence of sterile neutrinos and Non-Standard
Interactions (NSI). This talk will present the latest neutrino
oscillation results from the IceCube Collaboration
