About this product
- DescriptionThe centerpiece of the thesis is the search for muon neutri to electron neutri oscillations which would indicate a n-zero mixing angle between the first and third neutri generations (theta13), currently the holy grail of neutri physics. The optimal extraction of the electron neutri oscillation signal is based on the vel library event matching (LEM) method which Ochoa developed and implemented together with colleagues at Caltech and at Cambridge, which improves MINOS' (Main Injector Neutri Oscillator Search) reach for establishing an oscillation signal over any other method. LEM will w be the basis for MINOS' final results, and will likely keep MINOS at the forefront of this field until it completes its data taking in 2011. Ochoa and his colleagues also developed the successful plan to run MINOS with a beam tuned for antineutris, to make a sensitive test of CPT symmetry by comparing the inter-generational mass splitting for neutris and antineutris. Ochoa's in-depth, creative approach to the solution of a variety of complex experimental problems is an outstanding example for graduate students and longtime practitioners of experimental physics alike. Some of the most exciting results in this field to emerge in the near future may find their foundations in this thesis.
