Event description: 

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment consists of eight identically designed antineutrino detectors placed underground at different baselines from six 2.9 GWth nuclear reactors in China. With the largest sample of reactor antineutrino interactions to date, and a tight control of systematic uncertainties, the experiment has world-leading precision for the determination of two neutrino oscillation parameters and the characterization of antineutrino emission from commercial nuclear reactors. In this talk, I will give an overview of our latest results, with a focus on our latest search for sterile neutrino mixing and our most recent measurement of the reactor antineutrino spectrum. I will also briefly review the prospects for the experiment.
This is a zoom seminar.
