We report the results of a search for e appearance in a beam in the MINOS long-baseline neutrino experiment. With an improved analysis and an increased exposure of 8:2 Â 10 20 protons on the NuMI target at Fermilab, we find that 2sin 2 ð 23 Þsin 2 ð2 13 Þ < 0:12ð0:20Þ at 90% confidence level for ¼ 0 and the normal (inverted) neutrino mass hierarchy, with a(More)
We report measurements of oscillation parameters from ν(μ) and ν(μ) disappearance using beam and atmospheric data from MINOS. The data comprise exposures of 10.71×10(20) protons on target in the ν(μ)-dominated beam, 3.36×10(20) protons on target in the ν(μ)-enhanced beam, and 37.88 kton yr of atmospheric neutrinos. Assuming identical ν and ν oscillation(More)
This paper reports measurements of atmospheric neutrino and antineutrino interactions in the MINOS Far Detector, based on 2553 live-days (37.9 kton-years) of data. A total of 2072 candidate events are observed. These are separated into 905 contained-vertex muons and 466 neutrino-induced rock-muons, both produced by charged-current and " interactions, and(More)
We have searched for sidereal variations in the rate of antineutrino interactions in the MINOS Near Detector. Using antineutrinos produced by the NuMI beam, we find no statistically significant sidereal modulation in the rate. When this result is placed in the context of the Standard Model Extension theory
We report constraints on antineutrino oscillation parameters that were obtained by using the two MINOS detectors to measure the 7% muon antineutrino component of the NuMI neutrino beam. In the Far Detector, we select 130 events in the charged-current muon antineutrino sample, compared to a prediction of 136:4 AE 11:7ðstatÞ þ10:2 À8:9 ðsystÞ events under the(More)
Searches for a light sterile neutrino have been performed independently by the MINOS and the Daya Bay experiments using the muon (anti)neutrino and electron antineutrino disappearance channels, respectively. In this Letter, results from both experiments are combined with those from the Bugey-3 reactor neutrino experiment to constrain oscillations into light(More)
We report an improved measurement of " disappearance over a distance of 735 km using the MINOS detectors and the Fermilab Main Injector neutrino beam in a "-enhanced configuration. From a total exposure of 2:95 Â 10 20 protons on target, of which 42% have not been previously analyzed, we make the most precise measurement of Á " m 2
