Evidence for electron antineutrino disappearance at Daya Bay First K+ → π+ ν ν event

We are an experimental particle physics research group in the Physics Department of Brookhaven National Laboratory. Our mission is the exploration of properties and interactions of the constituents of matter.

Our group primarily studies very rare processes at the Intensity Frontier, one of three main research areas in high energy physics, along with the Energy and Cosmic frontiers. Our major current activities are the neutrino experiments: Daya Bay in China, LBNE in the Homestake mine in South Dakota and MINOS at FNAL. We continue to produce results from the very rare kaon decay experiment E949 at BNL and are pushing for a new experiment called ORKA at FNAL. We also participate in the rare pion decay experiment PIENU at TRIUMF and in the Cosmic frontier experiment, LSST in Chile. We are also involved in detector development: primarily water-based liquid scintillator with our colleagues in the Chemistry Department, LAr R&D with our colleagues in Physics as well as scintillator and Cherenkov detectors for kaon experiments.

This wiki comes in public and private flavors. You are visiting the public one. All edits should be made by authenticated users through the public version. These are automatically and periodically synchronized to the private version. Some information is only visible to authenticated users on the private version. See the help page for details.

For now the old wiki is still available. An even older page from the days of static HTML is also kept around.
