Measurement of neutrino velocity with the MINOS detectors and NuMI neutrino beam Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The velocity of a 3GeV neutrino beam is measured by comparing detection times at the near and far detectors of the MINOS experiment, separated by 734 km. A total of 473 far detector neutrino events was used to measure (v-c)/c=5.12.910-5 (at 68% C.L.). By correlating the measured energies of 258 charged-current neutrino events to their arrival times at the far detector, a limit is imposed on the neutrino mass of m<50MeV/c2 (99% C.L.). 2007 The American Physical Society.
