We present a search for Lorentz violation with 8249 candidate electron antineutrino events taken by the Double Chooz experiment in 227.9 live days of running. This analysis, featuring a search for a sidereal time dependence of the events, is the first test of Lorentz invariance using a reactor-based antineutrino source. No sidereal variation is present in the data and the disappearance results are consistent with sidereal time independent oscillations. Under the Standard-Model Extension (SME…

Tests of Lorentz and CPT violation with neutrinos
Lorentz violation has been shown to occur in the Planck scale theories. Although the three active massive neutrino framework with the Standard Model (SM), so-called the neutrino Standard Model (νSM),
Lorentz violation effects in two neutrino double-beta decay.
Observable effects for the Lorentz invariance violation (LIV) at a low energy scale can also be investigated in double beta decay (DBD). For example, by comparing the theoretical predictions with a

Probing Lorentz Invariance Violation with atmospheric neutrinos at INO-ICAL
Abstract The possibility of Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) may appear in unified theories, such as string theory, which allow the existence of a new space-time structure at the Planck scale (Mp
