Sterile neutrino search with kaon decay at rest

MetadataShow full item record
Monoenergetic muon neutrinos (235.5 MeV) from positive kaon decay at rest are considered as a source for an electron neutrino appearance search. In combination with a liquid argon time projection chamber based detector, such a source could provide discovery-level sensitivity to the neutrino oscillation parameter space (Δm[superscript 2]∼1 eV[superscript 2]) indicative of a sterile neutrino. Current and future intense ≳3 GeV kinetic energy proton facilities around the world can be employed for this experimental concept.
