First Results from Daya Bay Reported; 12:15 Presentation Today to be Webcast

March 8, 2012

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment today reported its first results, a strong measurement for the last of the unsolved neutrino “mixing angles,” theta one-three, which determines how electron neutrinos (and their antineutrino counterparts) mix and oscillate among other neutrino flavors. Berkeley Lab initiated U.S. participation in the multinational Daya Bay collaboration, the most sensitive reactor neutrino experiment in the world, which is led by the U.S. and China. Co-spokesperson Kam-Biu Luk of the Physics Division will discuss the results at a special seminar in the Bldg. 50 auditorium today at 12:15. Go here for live video streaming. More>
