WEBINAR: Study of atmospheric neutrino oscillations with the deap-sea Cherenkov detector KM3NeT/ORCA and synergies with reactor neutrinos

Starts: 14 October, 2022

Ends: 14 October, 2022




Abstract: KM3NeT/ORCA is a water-Cherenkov neutrino telescope being deployed in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea as part of the KM3NeT infrastructure. The configuration of the detector is optimized for the detection of atmospheric neutrinos with energies above 1 GeV. This talk focuses on the study of neutrino oscillations with the KM3NeT/ORCA detector. I will present a sensitivity study of ORCA for the neutrino mass ordering (NMO) as well as the gain in NMO sensitivity expected by combining the data of ORCA to those of JUNO, a next-generation reactor neutrino experiment being built in China. Finally, the first measurement of the oscillation parameters in the atmospheric sector using data taken with ORCA in its recent configuration with 6 lines deployed (ORCA6) will be discussed.
