JUNO Oscillation Physics Program
April 24, 2019
The JUNO (Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory), a 20 kton multi-purpose underground liquid scintillator detector, has been proposed and approved for realization in the south of China. After an intense design phase, the overall concept of the structure of the detector has been finalized, paving the way towards the construction of the several components and subsystems, which will compose it. Meanwhile, the excavation of the site, which will host the experiment has been started and is rapidly progressing. The main physics target of JUNO is the determination of the neutrino mass hierarchy, which will be accessible through the measurement of the antineutrino spectrum from two high power nuclear complexes under installation 53 km away from the experimental site. In this work, I describe the deep physics capabilities of the experiment in term of neutrino oscillation physics, which include in addition to the crucial measure of the neutrino hierarchy the high precision determination of three oscillation parameters, and I illustrate the main technical characteristics of the detector.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
