DoubleChooz - DoubleChooz Detector

Program Description: Neutrino oscillations were a major discovery in the late 90-ies and the corresponding experiments were therefore included in the 2002 Nobel Prize. Oscillations describe in-flight transformations of different neutrino species into each other and depend on three mixing parameters, of which two are large and have already been measured. The third one is called theta13 and is known to be smaller with an upper limit coming from a previous experiment at Chooz. The new Double Chooz detector is the first of a new generation of reactor neutrino experiments aiming at measuring this fundamental parameter in neutrino physics which is a key area of particle physics research. The experiment uses reactors of the Chooz Nuclear Power Plant as a neutrino source.

Year Started: 2010.

Organization Description: The Double Chooz collaboration is composed of universities and research institutes from Brazil, England, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, Spain and USA.
