The Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment is designed to study the disappearance of antineutrinos from the Daya Bay nuclear power plant in China. The goal of this experiment is to measure the remaining unknown neutrino mixing parameter theta13 with high precision: sin^2(2Θ_(13))<0.01. The experiment is presently under construction and it is anticipated that data acquisition will begin in 2011.
