By Juan Pedro Ochoa-Ricoux

The centerpiece of the thesis is the hunt for muon neutrino to electron neutrino oscillations which might point out a non-zero blending attitude among the 1st and 3rd neutrino generations (θ13), currently the “holy grail” of neutrino physics.  The optimum extraction of the electron neutrino oscillation sign relies at the novel “library occasion matching” (LEM) approach which Ochoa constructed and carried out including colleagues at Caltech and at Cambridge, which improves MINOS’ (Main Injector Neutrino Oscillator seek) achieve for constructing an oscillation sign over the other procedure. LEM will now be the foundation for MINOS’ outcome, and may most probably continue MINOS on the leading edge of this box till it completes its facts taking in 2011. Ochoa and his colleagues additionally constructed the winning plan to run MINOS with a beam tuned for antineutrinos, to make a delicate try out of CPT symmetry by means of evaluating the inter-generational mass splitting for neutrinos and antineutrinos. Ochoa’s in-depth, artistic method of the answer of a number of advanced experimental difficulties is a phenomenal instance for graduate scholars and longtime practitioners of experimental physics alike. probably the most intriguing ends up in this box to emerge within the close to destiny may well locate their foundations during this thesis.
