The STEREO experiment will search for a sterile neutrino by measuring the anti-neutrino energy spectrum as a function of the distance from the source, the ILL nuclear reactor. A dedicated electronic system, hosted in a single microTCA crate, was designed for this experiment. It performs triggering in two stages with various selectable conditions, processing and readout via UDP/IPBUS of 68 photomultiplier signals continuously digitized at 250 MSPS. Additionally, for detector performance…

Development of the source calibration system of the STEREO experiment and search for sterile neutrinos at the ILL
The STEREO experiment has been proposed to give an unambiguous response to the hypothesis of a light sterile neutrino state (∆m 2 ∼ 1eV 2 ) as the origin of the reactor antineutrino anomaly. Its goal
The STEREO experiment
The STEREO experiment is a very short baseline reactor antineutrino experiment aiming at testing the hypothesis of light sterile neutrinos as an explanation of the deficit of the observed neutrino

STEREO: Search for sterile neutrinos at the ILL
Recent studies have shown that there are discrepancies between observations and the theoretical predictions in some neutrino experiments at short distances. In the so-called ``Reactor Antineutrino
