A Search for Muon Neutrino to Electron Neutrino Oscillations by Juan Pedro Ochoa-Ricoux PDF

By Juan Pedro Ochoa-Ricoux

The centerpiece of the thesis is the quest for muon neutrino to electron neutrino oscillations which might point out a non-zero blending perspective among the 1st and 3rd neutrino generations (θ13), currently the “holy grail” of neutrino physics.  The optimum extraction of the electron neutrino oscillation sign relies at the novel “library occasion matching” (LEM) procedure which Ochoa constructed and carried out including colleagues at Caltech and at Cambridge, which improves MINOS’ (Main Injector Neutrino Oscillator seek) succeed in for constructing an oscillation sign over the other approach. LEM will now be the foundation for MINOS’ outcome, and may most likely continue MINOS on the vanguard of this box till it completes its facts taking in 2011. Ochoa and his colleagues additionally built the winning plan to run MINOS with a beam tuned for antineutrinos, to make a delicate attempt of CPT symmetry by means of evaluating the inter-generational mass splitting for neutrinos and antineutrinos. Ochoa’s in-depth, artistic method of the answer of various complicated experimental difficulties is a phenomenal instance for graduate scholars and longtime practitioners of experimental physics alike. essentially the most fascinating leads to this box to emerge within the close to destiny might locate their foundations during this thesis.

This thesis provides the 1st experimental calibration of the top-quark Monte-Carlo mass.  It additionally offers the top-quark mass-independent and so much exact top-quark pair creation cross-section dimension thus far. the main detailed measurements of the top-quark mass receive the top-quark mass parameter (Monte-Carlo mass) utilized in simulations, that are partly according to heuristic versions.
