Description

We report a conceptual design of the nearest neutrino detector, which primarily aims to search for the sterile neutrino oscillation at $\Delta m_{41}^2 \sim 2 eV^2$. The joint study of RENO and NEOS experiments showed a hint for the sterile neutrinos at $\Delta m_{41}^2 \sim 2.4 eV^2$ and $\sim 1.7 eV^2$, which overlap with the allowed region by the Reactor Anti-neutrino Anomaly. This Nearest detector can also be used for precision measurements of the flux and spectrum of the reactor electron antineutrino ($\bar{\nu_e}$) and the separation of $\bar{\nu_e}$ spectra from $^{235}U$ and $^{239}Pu$. In this presentation, we report the detector concept of the nearest reactor neutrino detector and physics cases.
