  5. Toward unraveling the mystery of matter dominated universe

  6. Sakharov’s 3 conditions To generate Baryon asymmetry in the unverse • There is a fundamental process that violates Baryon number • C and CP invariance is violated at the same time • There is a deviation from thermal equilibrium acting on B violating process

  7. Toward origin of matter dominated universe • Quark sector CPV is found to be not sufficient for reproducing present baryon content • Scenario for baryogenesis through lepton CP violation: Leptogenesis • CPV in lepton sector is responsible for B genesis • CPV in neutrino oscillation could provide a key to unravel mystery of origin of matter

  8. Let’s find CPV in lepton sector Let’s design an experiment to search for CPV in lepton sector • I give you • 1000億円 or • 1.2 Billion USD • 755M GBP • 55 Billion INR • 1,401 Billion Won • 2,130 Billion Peso • 7.9 Billion 元 • 918 Million Euro • 35 Billion Ruble • 1.2 Billion CHF If you find any good idea, let’s write a paper! One condition: Within 10years

  9. How? …. : Q1 • Do we really need oscillation phenomena to probe CPV?? • Can’t we attack CPV in an experiment which fit in an experimental hall like such as Kaon CPV or B CPV • Why??

  10. Measuring CPV in quark sector • Through loop diagram • Amplitude ∝ (mu,c,t/MW)2 • Please calculate • Since quark is heavy (especially top), this process becomes measureable VCKM u,c,t VCKM s,b W W W u,c,t d s,b VCKM VCKM VCKM u,c,t VCKM

  11. How about lepton sector? g Example: meg • Amplitude ∝ (mn/MW)2 • Standard model process STRONGLY suppressed • Thus, good field to search for physics beyond standard model W ne,nm,nt m e VMNS VMNS

  12. Oscillation n1 nl n2 nl’ n3

  13. Oscillation (cont) If Ei are same for all mass eigenstates E Ei’s are same, no oscillation, in other word, Ei’s are different, we can probe mixing matrix through oscillation Difference of Ei, ie, phase advance difference is essential For Dm2~10-3eV2

  14. B.Kyser, in this SS

  15. Q2: What oscillation process is best? • OK, now, we somehow understand we need (long baseline) oscillation phenomena to probe matrix elements and attack CPV. • What type of oscillation is best? • Fundamental physics reason • Experimental feasibility

  16. Disappearance ? Appearance? Oscillation probability Disappearance case There is no place for complex phase d in UMNS to appear Disappearance has no sensitivity on (standard) CPV

  17. Appearance • Conventional nm beam (~GeV) • nm ne • Not yet discovered • nm  nt • Dominant oscillation mode • Neutrino factory/Beta beam (~10GeV) • ne  nm • ne  nt Next talks

  18. ne vsnt appearance Oscillation probability (w/ CPV) • nm ntcase, • probability A∝sin22q23, is known to be large, relative effect of CPV becomes small • Also experimentally, identification of nt (out of lots of nm interactions ) is not easy • For nue appearance, A∝sin22q13 is known to be small •  Large CPV effect expected CP conserved part CPV part Relative effect of CPV

  19. Matter effect Interactions through propagation in matter nt ne nm e- nt nm ne ne NC W Z Z Z X X X ne e- X X X CC

  20. Relative size of effect ∝ E Change sign when Dm2 sign change: Can probe sign Change sign when n⇔nbar: Fake CPV effect Matter effect

  21. Oscillation probabilities 3 Dm232 2 1 when contribution from Dm12 is small (No CPV & matter eff. approx.) nm disappearance (LBL/Atm) q23 and Dm232 ~1 ne appearance (LBL/Atm) q13 and Dm132 ~0.5 Pure q13 and Dm132 ne disappearance (Reactor) ≪1

  22. d-d, a-a for nmne appearance & CPV Main CP-odd Solar Matter Matter eff.: Sensitivity indep. from q13 (if no BG & no syst. err) # of signal ∝ sin2q13 (Stat err∝sinq13), CP-odd term ∝ sinq13

  23. All mixing angle need to be non-zero Leading CP-odd d-d, a-a for + other terms.. Matter eff.: CPV effect (where sinq12~0.5, sinq23~0.7, sinq13<0.2) Same as Kobayashi-Maskawa model which require 3x3 to incorporate CPV 23 Takashi Kobayashi (KEK), PAC07

  24. CPV vs matter effect nmne osc. probability w/ CPV/matter 295km 730km @sin22q13=0.01 Smaller distance/lower energy  small matter effect Pure CPV & Less sensitivity on sign of Dm2 Combination of diff. E&L help to solve.

  25. Lepton Sector CP Violation Effect of CP Phase δ appear as • νe Appearance Energy Spectrum Shape *Peak position and height for 1st, 2nd maximum and minimum *Sensitive to all the non-vanishing δincluding 180° *Could investigate CP phase with νrun only • Difference between νe and νeBehavior

  26. How to do experiment? OK, we now understand • Importance of CPV in lepton sector • Necessity of oscillation to probe CPV • What process is suited for CPV measurement • Behavior of oscillation probabilities and relevant physics So, now, let’s consider more on experimentation!

  30. Cross section ∝ E Higher energy  higher statistics Anti-neutrino cross section smaller than neutrino by ~1/3 Why? Take ~3 times more time for anti-neutrino measurements to acquire same statistics as neutrino Cross sections

  34. 2 approaches for CPV (and sign(Dm2) ) • Energy spectrum measurement of appeared ne • Only w/ numu beam (at least early part) • Measure term ∝ cosd (and sind) • Assume standard source of CPV (d in MNS) • Cover 2nd oscillation maximum (higher sensitivity on CPV) • Higher energy = longer baseline favorable • Wideband beam suited • LiqAr TPC is better suited • Difference between P(numunue) and P(numubar nuebar) • Measure term ∝ sind • Not rely on the standard scenario
