Motivations

  • n masses and mixing → evidence of New Physics beyond the SM

  • Typical explanations (see-saw) involve NP at higher energies

  • This NP often induces deviations fromunitarityof the PMNS at low energy

We will analyze the present constraints on the mixing matrix

without assuming unitarity


The general idea


Effective Lagrangian

  • 3 light n

  • deviations from unitarity from NP at high energy


Effective Lagrangian

  • 3 light n

  • deviations from unitarity from NP at high energy

Diagonal mass and canonical kinetic terms:

unitary transformation + rescaling

Nnon-unitary

  • 3 light n

  • deviations from unitarity from NP at high energy

Diagonal mass and canonical kinetic terms:

unchanged

UNITARITY

  • Degeneracy

  • cannot be disentangled

Nelements from oscillations: e-row

Only disappearance exps → information only on |Nai|2

CHOOZ: Δ12≈0

K2K(nm→nm):Δ23


Nelements from oscillations: e-row

KamLAND+CHOOZ+K2K

→ first degeneracy solved

SNO:

Conclusions

  • If we don’t assume unitarity for the leptonic mixing matrix

  • Present oscillation experiments alone can only measure half the elements

  • EW decays confirms unitarity at % level

  • Combining oscillations and EW decays, bounds for all the elements can

  • be found comparable with the ones obtained with the unitary analysis

  • Future experiments can:

    • improve the present measurements on the e- and m-rows

    • give information on the t-row and on phases (appearance exps)

    • test unitarity by constraining the zero-distance effect

    • with a near detector


Back-up slides

  • NOMAD:(NN†)mt <0.09

  • KARMEN:(NN†)me <0.05

  • MINOS:(NN†)mm=1±0.05

  • BUGEY:(NN†)ee =1±0.04

…adding near detectors…

Test of zero-distance effect:

→ also all |Nmi|2determined


Non-unitarity from see-saw

Integrate outNR

d=5 operator

it gives mass ton

d=6 operator

it renormalises kinetic energy
