Abstract We propose a new approach to explore the neutral-current non-standard neutrino interactions (NSI) in atmospheric neutrino experiments using oscillation dips and valleys in reconstructed muon observables, at a detector like ICAL that can identify the muon charge. We focus on the flavor-changing NSI parameter εμτ, which has the maximum impact on the muon survival probability in these experiments. We show that non-zero εμτ shifts the oscillation dip locations in L/E distributions of the…

Testing non-standard neutrino interactions in (anti)-electron neutrino disappearance experiments
We search for scalar and tensor non-standard interactions using (anti)-electron neutrino disappearance in oscillation data. We found a slight preference for non-zero CP violation, coming from both
Validating the Earth's Core using Atmospheric Neutrinos with ICAL at INO
The Iron Calorimeter (ICAL) detector at the proposed India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) aims to detect atmospheric neutrinos and antineutrinos separately in the multi-GeV range of energies and
From oscillation dip to oscillation valley in atmospheric neutrino experiments
Atmospheric neutrino experiments can show the "oscillation dip" feature in data, due to their sensitivity over a large $L/E$ range. In experiments that can distinguish between neutrinos and
