Presentation Transcript

  1. EURO A High Intensity Neutrino Oscillation Facility in Europe • Introduction • Superbeam • Neutrino Factory • Beta beams • Detectors • Physics • Possible next steps

  2. EUROnu • FP7 Design Study • Due to limited funds: focus on possible “next” generation neutrino oscillation facilities in Europe • CERN to Frejus superbeam • Neutrino Factory (in collab. with IDS-NF) • Beta beams • + performance of baseline detectors and physics reach • Output: comparison of physics, “cost” & risk • Reported to CERN Council via SG/ECFA • Project started: 1st September 2008 • Duration: 4 years – completion in August 2012

  3. Partners

  4. EUROnu Status • Baselines largely defined • Design work still continues • Moving more towards “engineering” • Costing: • WBS being done • Framework being created using cost tool • Workshop planned soon • Safety and risk also to be done • Midterm technical review on 14th April • 17 months left!

  5. Super-Beam • Design of CERN to Frejus SB based on SPL

  6. Neutrino Factory • Close collaboration with IDS-NF • IDR completed Muon front-end Muon acceleration

  7. Beta-Beam • Main issue in EUROnu: maximise ion production • 2 options being considered: - 6He & 18Ne → baseline - 8Li & 8B back-up

  8. 50-100 m 15 m n beam 50-100kT 15 m B=1 T iron (3 cm) + scintillators (2cm) • Limited funding: only performance and “cost” • Concentrate on baseline detectors • Magnetised Iron Neutrino Detector - NF • Large water cherenkov – SB and BB • Near detectors • Closely linked to IDS Detectors

  9. Physics performance • Optimisation: • baselines and energies • synergies: experimental setups and facilities • Systematics Physics

  10. Next Steps • Technical review: 14th April • ECFA Neutrino Panel: now! • CERN Strategy Review: kick-off this summer finish next summer/autumn • EUROnu contribution under discussion: - input before EUROnu finished - agreement is combined input from: EUROnu LAGUNA-LBNO IDS etc • EUROnu final report will also go to Council • EUROnu future: also under discussion - would like to continue - how needs to be determined
