**Directional Sensitivity in Double Chooz**LAUNCH Workshop Heidelberg 23.3.2007 Kathrin A. Hochmuth Max-Planck-Institut für Physik**Outline**• Neutrino Direction Measurements • CHOOZ measurements • Two Reactors - separation of sources? - monitoring power output? • analytical estimates and maximum likelihood analysis - for Double Chooz setup with 30° separation - for hypothetical setup with 90° separation in collaboration with M. Lindner and G. Raffelt**Neutrino Direction**= average displacement for reactor energies ~ 1.9 cm Note: uncertainty of locating the positron annihilation and neutron absorption points is large! Uncertainty of displacement**Setup**CHOOZ determined each of the angles with s ~ 12° with 2,500 events Double Chooz near detector: 160,000 events per year**One Reactor**CHOOZ event rate (2,500); true values q f**One Reactor**CHOOZ event rate (2,500); true values q f Double Chooz event rate (160,000)**Two Reactors ???**160,000 events Single Reactor Double Chooz 30° separation Hypothetical setup 90° separation**Probability Distribution Function**tilt angle w.r.t x-y plane; relative strength of the reactors, where (assume for now: ) displacement: 1.9 cm uncertainty of the displacement: 20 cm Separation angle Central angle For Double Chooz**Important Points**y-axis distribution gives information on the angular separation x-distribution gives only information on the center of the distribution No distinction from a single Gauss; >10 Mio events needed**Important Points**y-axis distribution gives information on the angular separation x-distribution gives only information on the center of the distribution No distinction from a single Gauss; >10 Mio events needed**Non-Gaussianity**Good resolution Bad resolution No clear distinction because cosf1~1**Angular Separation of 2 Sources**160,000 events Non-Gaussian behavior No distinction from 0° Reactor 1 Separation angle Central angle well determinded x-distribution behaves like a single Gaussian**7 years Double Chooz**Reactor 1 Separation angle 3 s distinction possible after 7 years**Hypothetical 90° separation**for 160,000 events: Clear separation of the angles f1,f2 with s1~3.2° central angle: sc~2.3° • separation angle: s~4.6° Note:**Reactor Strength**Reactor strength 1 year Double Chooz: 160,000 events: 5 years: f1=45° after 1 year: True value: b1=b2=0.5 after 1 month**Conclusions**• Separation of the two Double Chooz reactors challenging, because of small separation angle and • 3 s separation of the two Double Chooz reactors after 7 years • Separation Potential increases with increasing angles=> clear distinction for 90° separation after 1 year • Possible to monitor the strength of each individual reactor; for 1 year Double Chooz with**References**M.
