Abstract

The NOvA experiment is a long-baseline accelerator-based neutrino oscillation experiment. It uses the upgraded NuMI beam from Fermilab and measures electron-neutrino appearance and muon-neutrino disappearance between its onsite near detector and the far detector in Ash River, Minnesota. The beam recently reached the 700kW power design benchmark. Goals of the experiment include measurements of theta13, mass hierarchy, theta23 octant and the CP violating phase. This work is a proceeding to a talk which described the experiment and the status of its measurements and which presented the latest results based on the exposure equivalent to 6.05 x 10e20 POT.
