Presentation Transcript
EURO

A High Intensity Neutrino Oscillation Facility in Europe

  • Introduction

  • Superbeam

  • Neutrino Factory

  • Beta beams

  • Detectors

  • Physics

  • Possible next steps


Euronu
EUROnu

  • FP7 Design Study

  • Due to limited funds: focus on possible “next” generation neutrino oscillation facilities in Europe

    • CERN to Frejus superbeam

    • Neutrino Factory (in collab. with IDS-NF)

    • Beta beams

  • + performance of baseline detectors and physics reach

  • Output: comparison of physics, “cost” & risk

  • Reported to CERN Council via SG/ECFA

  • Project started: 1st September 2008

  • Duration: 4 years – completion in August 2012



Euronu status
EUROnu Status

  • Baselines largely defined

  • Design work still continues

  • Moving more towards “engineering”

  • Costing:

    • WBS being done

    • Framework being created using cost tool

    • Workshop planned soon

  • Safety and risk also to be done

  • Midterm technical review on 14th April

  • 17 months left!


Super beam
Super-Beam

  • Design of CERN to Frejus SB based on SPL


Neutrino factory
Neutrino Factory

  • Close collaboration with IDS-NF

  • IDR completed

Muon front-end

Muon acceleration


Beta beam
Beta-Beam

  • Main issue in EUROnu: maximise ion production

  • 2 options being considered: - 6He & 18Ne → baseline - 8Li & 8B back-up


Detectors

50-100 m

15 m

n beam

50-100kT

15 m

B=1 T

iron (3 cm)

+ scintillators (2cm)

  • Limited funding: only performance and “cost”

  • Concentrate on baseline detectors

    • Magnetised Iron Neutrino Detector - NF

    • Large water cherenkov – SB and BB

    • Near detectors

  • Closely linked to IDS

Detectors


Physics

  • Physics performance

  • Optimisation:

    • baselines and energies

    • synergies: experimental setups and facilities

  • Systematics

Physics


Next steps
Next Steps

  • Technical review: 14th April

  • ECFA Neutrino Panel: now!

  • CERN Strategy Review: kick-off this summer finish next summer/autumn

  • EUROnu contribution under discussion: - input before EUROnu finished - agreement is combined input from: EUROnu LAGUNA-LBNO IDS etc

  • EUROnu final report will also go to Council

  • EUROnu future: also under discussion - would like to continue - how needs to be determined
