The medium baseline reactor antineutrino experiment, Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO), which is being planned to be built at Jiangmen in South China, can determine the neutrino mass hierarchy and improve the precision of three oscillation parameters by one order of magnitude. The sensitivity potential on these measurements is reviewed and design concepts of the central detector are illustrated. Finally, we emphasize on the technical challenges we meet and the corresponding R&D…

Synergies and complementarities between proposed future neutrino projects

Measuring the unknown neutrino oscillation parameters is one of the main aims in neutrino physics today. The measurement of these parameters is severely affected by the presence of degeneracies in

Probing New Physics in Low Energy Solar Neutrino Oscillation Data

We explore the effects of nonstandard neutrino interactions in the lower components of the solar neutrino spectrum which are predominant by the vacuum oscillations. The recent measurements of

La Thuile 2014: Theoretical premises to neutrino round table

This talk, dedicated to the memory of G. Giacomelli, introduced the round table on neutrinos held in February 2014. The topics selected for the discussion are: 1) the neutrinoless double beta decay

Invited review: Physics potential of the ICAL detector at the India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO)

The upcoming 50 kt magnetized iron calorimeter (ICAL) detector at the India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) is designed to study the atmospheric neutrinos and antineutrinos separately over a wide

Beta-decay emitted electronic antineutrinos as a tool for unsolved problems in neutrino oscillation physics

The framework of neutrino oscillations is quite well-understood and now requires precision rather than exploration. The Double Chooz experiment aims at measuring the theta13 mixing angle through the



Observation of reactor electron antineutrinos disappearance in the RENO experiment.

The RENO experiment has observed the disappearance of reactor electron antineutrinos, consistent with neutrino oscillations, with a significance of 4.9 standard deviations. Antineutrinos from six 2.8

Experimental Requirements to Determine the Neutrino Mass Hierarchy Using Reactor Neutrinos

This paper presents experimental requirements to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy using reactor neutrinos. The detector shall be located at a baseline around 58 km from the reactor(s) to measure

Determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy at an intermediate baseline

It is generally believed that neutrino mass hierarchy can be determined at a long baseline experiment, often using accelerator neutrino beams. Reactor neutrino experiments at an intermediate baseline

European Strategy for Accelerator-Based Neutrino Physics

Massive neutrinos reveal physics beyond the Standard Model, which could have deep consequences for our understanding of the Universe. Their study should therefore receive the highest level of

Letter of Intent: The Hyper-Kamiokande Experiment --- Detector Design and Physics Potential ---

We propose the Hyper-Kamiokande (Hyper-K) detector as a next generation underground water Cherenkov detector. It will serve as a far detector of a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment

Observation of electron-antineutrino disappearance at Daya Bay.

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment has measured a nonzero value for the neutrino mixing angle θ(13) with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations. Antineutrinos from six 2.9 GWth reactors were

Another possible way to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy

We show that by combining high precision measurements of the atmospheric $\ensuremath{\delta}{m}^{2}$ in both the electron and muon neutrino (or antineutrino) disappearance channels one can determine


The IceCube neutrino observatory at the South Pole uses 1 km3 of instrumented ice to detect both astrophysical and atmospheric neutrinos. Expanding the capabilities of the original design, the
