III NuMI Off-Axis Experiment
July 10-12, 2003
Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
NuMI neutrino beam, currently under construction, offers an
unique opportunity for detailed studies of the neutrino oscillation.
This beam offers a particularly interesting opportunity for a
very sensitive search for numu to nue oscillations, which can
provide a variety of new physics insights in the neutrino sector,
including the pattern of neutrino mass hierarchy, measurement
of the hereto poorly constrained mixing angle theta13 and, perhaps,
At this workshop we will review the progress made towards
a formulation of a proposal. In particular, we plan to focus our attention
- Expected beam intensity, possible upgrade plans, longer term plans
for the accelerator complex at Fermilab
- Physics potential of the Off-axis beams, comparison with
other planned or talked about experiments
- Trade-offs between detector parameters (geometry, granularity,
transverse segmentation) and the physics potential of the experiment
- Progress with detector R&D
- Organization of the Proposal
There will be no registration fee, but we very strongly encourage
the participants to register using the online
We encourage computer-based presentations at the workshop.
However, a projector will be made available to those using viewgraphs.
Following the workshop, the presented material will be available
at the off-axis web pages, located at http://www-off-axis.fnal.gov/.
We expect all presentations to be provided to us electronically
(that is, we are not planning to provide scanning services).
Looking forward to seeing you at Fermilab.
