Results from the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment


The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment was designed to achieve a sensitivity on the value of sin^2 2θ_(13) to better than 0.01 at 90% CL. The experiment consists of eight antineutrino detectors installed underground at different baselines from six nuclear reactors. With data collected with six antineutrino detectors for 55 days, Daya Bay announced the discovery of a non-zero value for sin^2 2θ_(13) with a significance of 5.2 standard deviations in March 2012. The most recent analysis with 139 days of data acquired in a six-detector configuration yields sin^2 2θ_(13) = 0.089 ± 0.010 (stat.) ± 0.005 (syst.), which is the most precise measurement of sin^2 2θ_(13) to date.
