Abstract:
The results of LSND and MiniBooNE, along with the recent results on a possible reactor neutrino flux anomaly, give tantalizing hints of new physics. Models beyond the SM have been developed to explain these results and involve one or more additional neutrinos that are non-interacting or “sterile." Neutrino beams produced from the decay of muons in a racetrack-like decay ring provide a powerful way to study this potential new physics. In this talk, I will describe the facility, nuSTORM, and an appropriate far detector for neutrino oscillation searches at short baseline. I will present sensitivity plots that indicated that this experimental approach can provide 10  confirmation or rejection of the LSND/MinBooNE results. In addition I will explain how the facility can be used to make neutrino interaction cross section measurements of unprecedented precision. The unique neutrino beam available at the nuSTORM facility has the potential to be transformational in our approach to neutrino interaction physics, offering a “neutrino light source” to physicists from a number of disciplines.
