The velocity of a ~3 GeV neutrino beam is measured by comparing detection times at the near and far detectors of the MINOS experiment, separated by 734 km. A total of 473 far detector neutrino events was used to measure (v-c)/c=5.12.910-5 (at 68% C.L.). By correlating the measured energies of 258 charged-current neutrino events to their arrival times at the far detector, a limit is imposed on the neutrino mass of mnu<50 MeV/c2 (99% C.L.).

Precision measurement of the speed of propagation of neutrinos using the MINOS detectors
We report a two-detector measurement of the propagation speed of neutrinos over a baseline of 734 km. The measurement was made with the NuMI beam at Fermilab between the near and far MINOS detectors.
The Magnetized Steel and Scintillator Calorimeters of the MINOS Experiment
The Main Injector Neutrino Oscillation Search (MINOS) experiment uses an acceleratorproduced neutrino beam to perform precision measurements of the neutrino oscillation parameters in the “atmospheric
A measurement of neutrino oscillations with muon neutrinos in the MINOS experiment
Experimental evidence has established that neutrino flavor states evolve over time. A neutrino of a particular flavor that travels some distance can be detected in a different neutrino flavor state.
New Constraints on Neutrino Velocities
The OPERA collaboration has claimed that muon neutrinos with mean energy of 17.5 GeV travel 730 km from CERN to the Gran Sasso at a speed exceeding that of light by about 7.5 km/s or 25 ppm. However,
Neutrino velocity measurement with the OPERA experiment in the CNGS beam
In the thesis is presented the measurement of the neutrino velocity with the OPERA experiment in the CNGS beam, a muon neutrino beam produced at CERN. The OPERA detector observes muon neutrinos 730
Three flavour neutrino oscillations in MINOS
MINOS+ is an extension of the MINOS long-baseline neutrino experiment. It makes measurements of the upgraded NuMI neutrino beam at two detectors: the Near Detector, 1 km from the beam at Fermilab,
Detection of supernova neutrinos with neutrino-iron scattering
The v e - 56 Fe cross section is evaluated in the projected quasiparticle random phase approximation (PQRPA). This model solves the puzzle observed in RPA for nuclei with mass around 12 C, because it
