From Double Chooz to Triple Chooz - Neutrino Physics at the Chooz Reactor Complex

  title={From Double Chooz to Triple Chooz - Neutrino Physics at the Chooz Reactor Complex},
  author={Patrick Huber and Joachim Kopp and Manfred Lindner and Mark Rolinec and Walter Winter},
  journal={Journal of High Energy Physics},
We discuss the potential of the proposed Double Chooz reactor experiment to measure the neutrino mixing angle sin22θ13. We especially consider systematical uncertainties and their partial cancellation in a near and far detector operation, and we discuss implications of a delayed near detector startup. Furthermore, we introduce Triple Chooz, which is a possible upgrade scenario assuming a second, larger far detector, which could start data taking in an existing cavern five years after the first…

The smallness of the observed neutrino masses might have a radiative origin. Here we revisit a specific two-loop model of neutrino mass, independently proposed by Babu and Zee. We point out that
