Abstract
PROSPECT, the Precision Reactor Oscillation and Spectrum Experiment, is a phased experiment at the High Flux Isotope Reactor of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The two primary goals of the experiment are to measure the ${}^{235}$U antineutrino spectrum and to perform a search for sterile neutrinos with a $\Delta m_{14}^2$ on the 1eV${}^2$ scale.
The Phase I detector will cover a baseline range of 7-12 m from the core while the second phase will extend the baseline out to 20 m.
The detection medium for the first phase is 3-tons of ${}^6$Li loaded liquid scintillator in an optically segmented detector.
This talk describes the current status of the experiment and the projected sensitivity in the search for an eV-scale sterile neutrino.
