Why q 13 so important n m n e appearance and cpv
Why q13 so important?nmne appearance and CPV


Sol term

CPV effect


(sinq12~0.5, sinq23~0.7, sinq13<0.2)

The size of q13 decides future direction!


Brief history and present situation
Brief history and present situation

  • In 1998, evidence of nm  nx (disappearance) discovered SK in atmn observation

  • In 1999, as a next critical step toward CPV search, importance of nmne appearance search pointed out (K.Nishikawa&Y.Totsuka)

  • In 2001, LoI of T2K

  • After 10yrs of hard work worldwide for various experiments to discover non-zero q13, now we are getting into “harvest” season

  • Final conclusion on q13 will come very soon (hopefully)

Searches for non zero q 13
Searches for non-zero q13

By using reactor neutrino

  • :<E> ~ a few MeV edisappearance

  • P(ee) = 1- sin2213・sin2(1.27m231L/E) + O(m221/m231)

  •  Almost pure measurement of q13.

  • Small deficit signal  systematics dominated

By using accelerator neutrino

  • nm:<E> ~ O(GeV)  neappearance

  • P(me) = sin2q23・sin2213・sin2(1.27m231L/E) + many terms(incl. d)

  •  Appearance measurement of q13.

  •  Statistics limited

T2k j parc status and plan
T2K&J-PARC status and plan

  • J-PARC has not been operated since Mar. 11, 2011

  • Intensive recovery works are on-going

  • We will resume J-PARC operation in Dec. 2011

    • First, LINAC will start operation on Dec. 12, 2011

  • We plan to have >2 “cycle”(~month) beam for users within JFY2011 (by the end of Mar,2012)

  • In FY2012 (Apr.2012-Mar.2013) J-PARC plan to operate fully (~9month) (budget requested)

  • LINAC energy recovery from 181MeV to 400MeV originally scheduled in 2012 was delayed to start July 2013

    • User’s needs to take longer beam after long shutdown by the earthquake

    • Delay of preparation caused by earthquake

Prospect of beam power
Prospect of beam power

  • Highest priority is to establish non-zero q13 and precise measurement of q13 as soon as possible

  • T2K is still very much statistically limited (only 2% of approved POT has been taken)

  • Accelerator power improvement is CRITICAL (At present 145kW)

    • Short term

      • Replacement of inj. Kicker before next beam

      • Addition of RF (planned) for higher rep&ppb

      • Higher capacity for beam loss (collimator)

      • Tuning of present MR power supply for higher rep rate (3.042.6  more)

      • High power beam study

    • Longer term (few yrs) toward design intensity and beyond

      • R&D of high gradient RF core

      • R&D of high rep rate MR power supply (~1Hz or more)

T2k sensitivities and milestones
T2K sensitivities and milestones

  • We have : 0.07[MWx107s] = 0.143e21 pot

    We aim to have

  • By Summer 2013: ~0.5[MWx107s] ~ 1e21pot

    • Conclude non-zero q13

    • >5sigma for present T2K central value

  • Within a few yrs : ~ 1[MWx107s] ~ 2e21pot

    • > 3sigma for sin22q13 > 0.04

  • Approved goal : 3.75[MWx107s] ~ 8e21pot

    • > 3sigma for sin22q13 >~ 0.02

Implication of large q 13 on future
Implication of large q13 on Future

  • If sin22q13> ~0.01

    • Make conventional Multi-MW super beam long baseline experiments possible to explore CPV in lepton sector

    • Although big step needed

  • IF not

    • Need “ideal” beam such as Neutrino Factory or beta beam to probe CPV

T2K region

Implication of large q 13 on future1
Implication of large q13 on Future

1st peak @ 295km (0.6GeV)

  • CPV asymmetry get smaller for larger q13

    • Severer requirement on systematic error

    • Matter effect becomes comparable even at @295km

    •  Need energy spectrum information to disentangle CPV and Matter effect

  • ~20% CPV effect at sin22q13=0.1 w/ sindCP=1 (max. vio.) at 1st peak

    • To detect CPV >3s for sind>0.2 (Asym=4%) O(10k) events necessary

    • Much higher statistics is necessary  >MW proton & huge detector mandatory

T2K 90% region

Matter effect

Pure CPV effect

 Next talk


  • Quest for non-zero q13 is turning around final corner

  • T2K detected first indication of ne appearance at 2.5s significance

    • 0.03(0.04)<sin22q13<0.28(0.34) (inv hier)

  • MINOS presented consistent results

  • New reactor experiments are getting online

  • NOvA will come in 2014

  • Discovery of finite q13 will come very soon (hopefully)!

  • Large q13 makes possible to explore CPV with upgraded >MW beam and Huge high sensitivity detector
