The Double Chooz experiment presents an indication of reactor electron antineutrino disappearance consistent with neutrino oscillations. An observed-to-predicted ratio of events of 0.944±0.016(stat)±0.040(syst) was obtained in 101 days of running at the Chooz nuclear power plant in France, with two 4.25 GW(th) reactors. The results were obtained from a(More)

The P.D. across the protoplasm of Valonia macrophysa has been studied while the cells were exposed to artificial solutions resembling sea water in which the concentration of KCl was varied from 0 to 0.500 mol per liter. The P.D. across the protoplasm is decreased by lowering and increased by raising the concentration of KCl in the external solution. Changes(More)
Electrical connection with the sap of the (very large) vacuole was made by piercing the cell with a fine glass capillary tube filled with artificial sap. It was found that on standing the protoplasm becomes attached to the glass, forming a seal which prevents short circuit between the cell wall and the sap at the spot where the tube passes through the(More)
The MIT Faculty has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters. Double Chooz is unique among modern reactor-based neutrino experiments studying ¯ νe disappearance in that data can be collected with all reactors off. In this paper, we present data from 7.53 days of reactor-off running. Applying the same(More)
The concentration effect with sea waters containing more than the normal amount of potassium has been studied in Valonia macrophysa. This was done by comparing the initial changes in P.D. across the protoplasm when natural sea water bathing the cell was replaced by various isotonic dilutions of KCl-rich sea waters. With small dilutions of KCl-rich sea(More)
