Towards a Sub-percent Precision Measurement of $\sin^2\theta_{13}$ with Reactor Antineutrinos

  title={Towards a Sub-percent Precision Measurement of \$\sin^2\theta\_\{13\}\$ with Reactor Antineutrinos},
  author={Jinnan Zhang and Jun Cao},
: Measuring the neutrino mixing parameter sin 2 θ 13 to the sub-percent precision level could be necessary in the next ten years for the precision unitary test of the PMNS matrix. In this work, we discuss the possibility of such a measurement with reactor antineutrinos. We find that a single liquid scintillator detector on a reasonable scale could achieve the goal. We propose to install a detector of ∼ 10 % energy resolution at about 2.0 km from the reactors. The integrated luminosity…
