CAPP physicists currently participate in the Fermilab experiments MicroBooNE and NOvA, the Daya Bay and PROSPECT reactor-neutrino experiments, the MuCool project, and the MICE experiment.


• Having accumulated the world's largest sample of hyperon decays, HyperCP extended the study of CP violation using a method that was both new and unique.


MuCool addresses technical issues related to the development and construction of a neutrino factory or muon collider, either of which could be sited at Fermilab.


• The Daya Bay Neutrino Experiment is designed to measure the neutrino mixing angle θ13 using anti-neutrinos produced by the reactors of the Daya Bay and Ling Ao nuclear power plants.

MINOS was a long-baseline neutrino experiment designed to detect neutrino oscillations. It used two detectors 400 miles apart: one at Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois, and the other at the Soudan Underground Mine State Park in Soudan, Minnesota.


MICE is being carried out by an international collaboration as an experimental demonstration of muon-beam cooling. This is a crucial test of technology that could be used to build a neutrino factory or muon collider.


• The Double Chooz experiment goal is to search for a non-vanishing value of the θ13 neutrino mixing angle starting in 2010. This is the last step to accomplish in preparing for the coming era of precision measurements in the lepton sector.
NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino experiment designed to study neutrino oscillations and determine the neutrino mass hierarchy. It uses two detectors 500 miles apart: one at Fermilab in Batavia, Illinois, and the other in a surface building in Ash River, Minnesota.

PROSPECT is a reactor neutrino experiment at very short baselines to make a precision measurement of the flux and energy spectrum of antineutrinos emitted from nuclear reactors. PROSPECT will search for the oscillation signature of sterile neutrinos and test our understanding of the emission of antineutrinos from the fission products in a nuclear reactor.

The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is a leading-edge, international experiment for neutrino science and proton decay studies. Discoveries over the past half-century have put neutrinos, the most abundant matter particles in the universe, in the spotlight for further research into several fundamental questions about the nature of matter and the evolution of the universe—questions that DUNE will seek to answer.
