"Recent Results from the NOvA Neutrino Experiment"

Gavin Davies , Indiana University
[Host: Craig Group]

Neutrinos are abundant fundamental particles throughout the universe; second-most only to the photon. They undergo a phenomenon called neutrino oscillation whereby they change flavor from one type to another as they travel. The NOvA experiment seeks to elucidate further understanding of this phenomenon utilizing Fermilab's NuMI neutrino beam and two detectors to observe neutrino interactions: a 300 ton near detector underground at Fermilab, IL and a 14 kton far detector in Ash River, MN.

The NOvA experiment has recently produced updated neutrino oscillation measurements as well as its first antineutrino oscillation results and these are presented herein.
