Description

NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment at Fermilab. It uses two functionally-identical detectors at a distance of 810 km to measure electron-neutrino appearance and muon-neutrino disappearance in the NuMI muon neutrino beam. These measurements address the remaining unknowns in neutrino oscillations: the mass hierarchy, the 𝜃23 octant and possibly the CP violation in the leptonic sector. I will present the current status of the NOvA experiment and new results after two years of data taking equivalent to 6.05 × 10^20 POT for a full 14 kton detector exposure.
