"CP-Violation with Neutrino Disappearance"

Peter Denton , Brookhaven National Laboratory
[Host: Julian Heeck]

The best way to probe CP violation in the lepton sector is with long-baseline accelerator neutrino experiments in the appearance mode: the appearance of νe in predominantly νμ beams. Here we show that it is possible to discover CP violation with disappearance experiments only, by combining JUNO for electron neutrinos and DUNE or Hyper-Kamiokande for muon neutrinos. While the maximum sensitivity to discover CP is quite modest (1.6σ with 6 years of JUNO and 13 years of DUNE), some values of δ may be disfavored by > 3σ depending on the true value of δ.
