Abstract
Neutrino oscillations successfully explain the flavor transitions observed in neutrinos produced in natural sources like the center of the sun and the earth atmosphere, and also from man-made sources like reactors and accelerators. These oscillations are driven by two mass-squared differences, solar and atmospheric, at the sub-eV scale. However, longstanding anomalies at short-baselines might imply the existence of new oscillation frequencies at the eV-scale and the possibility of this sterile state(s) to mix with the three active neutrinos. One of the many future neutrino programs that are expected to provide a final word on this issue is the Short-Baseline Neutrino Program (SBN) at FERMILAB. In this paper, we consider a specific model of Large Extra Dimensions (LED) which provides interesting signatures of oscillation of extra sterile states and we implemented neutrino oscillations as predicted in the LED model in order to perform the sensitivity analysis to the LED parameters at SBN experiment. We have found that SBN is sensitive to the oscillations predicted in the LED model and have the potential to constrain the LED parameter space better than any other oscillation experiment for small values of the absolute lighter neutrino mass and normal ordering.
