Article: Contemporary status of the OPERA experiment for detecting νμ → ντ oscillations in a νμ beam[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The first results of the physical stage of the OPERA experiment in 2007, when observation of oscillations of gvμ into gvτ started, are discussed. Thirty eight events related to neutrino interactions in emulsion blocks (bricks) are found. The underground muon spectrum and the μ+/μ− ratio are obtained. The results of using detachable emulsion packs (changeable sheets) and accuracy of predictions of neutrino interaction vertices in emulsion layers are discussed. The results of the hardware and software upgrade of the automatic emulsion scanning system PAVIKOM are reported.Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences Physics 04/2012; 73(5):646-648.
Article: Search for neutrino oscillations vμ → vτ in CERN → Gran Sasso high-energy neutrino beam (the OPERA experiment)[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The main purpose of the OPERA experiment is the direct observation of neutrino oscillations (vμ → vτ) in the vμ beam from the CERN accelerator through the direct detection of τ leptons in nuclear emulsions at the Gran Sasso National Underground Laboratory. Some aspects of the use of the Russian PAVICOM facility for processing and analyzing the data obtained from the OPERA experiment are discussed.Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences Physics 03/2007; 71(4):579-581.
