BooNE in a Nutshell

BooNE will investigate the question of neutrino mass by searching for neutrino oscillations from muon neutrinos to electron neutrinos. This will be done by directing a muon neutrino beam into the MiniBooNE detector and looking for electron neutrinos. This experiment is motivated by the oscillation results reported by the LSND experiment at Los Alamos.

By changing the muon neutrino beam into an anti-neutrino beam, BooNE can explore oscillations from muon anti-neutrinos to electron anti-neutrinos. A comparison between neutrino and anti-neutrino results will tell us about CP- and CPT-violation.
