The Impact of Neutrino-Nucleus Interactions on DUNE's CP-Violation Measurement

Project description

Improving DUNE's sensitivity to CP-violation

Why the universe we observe today is made entirely of matter is one of the biggest questions of modern physics. If the Big Bang created equal amounts of matter and antimatter, everything should have been annihilated – what tipped that balance is still unknown. The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) is a leading-edge, international experiment for neutrino science that could provide insight into CP-violation, namely why we live in a matter-dominated universe. The EU-funded ARNU project will employ new analysis techniques to reduce the systematic errors in DUNE's CP-violation measurements caused by uncertainties in the understanding of neutrino–nucleus interactions. These should help better distinguish between different nuclear models, ultimately improving DUNE's sensitivity to CP-violation.
