    Measurement of single-diffractive dijet production in proton-proton collisions at s = 8 Te with the CMS and TOTEM experiments.

    , Eur Phys J C Part Fields, Vol: 80, Pages: 1164-1164, ISSN: 1434-6044

    Measurements are presented of the single-diffractive dijet cross section and the diffractive cross section as a function of the proton fractional momentum loss ξ and the four-momentum transfer squared t. Both processes p p → p X and p p → X p , i.e. with the proton scattering to either side of the interaction point, are measured, where X includes at least two jets; the results of the two processes are averaged. The analyses are based on data collected simultaneously with the CMS and TOTEM detectors at the LHC in proton–proton collisions at s√=8TeV during a dedicated run with β∗=90m at low instantaneous luminosity and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 37.5nb−1. The single-diffractive dijet cross section σ p X jj, in the kinematic region ξ<0.1, 0.03<|t|<1GeV2, with at least two jets with transverse momentum pT>40GeV, and pseudorapidity |η|<4.4, is 21.7±0.9(stat)+3.0−3.3(syst)±0.9(lumi)nb. The ratio of the single-diffractive to inclusive dijet yields, normalised per unit of ξ, is presented as a function of x, the longitudinal momentum fraction of the proton carried by the struck parton. The ratio in the kinematic region defined above, for x values in the range −2.9≤log10x≤−1.6, is R=(σ p X jj/Δξ)/σjj=0.025±0.001(stat)±0.003(syst), where σ p X jj and σjj are the single-diffractive and inclusive dijet cross sections, respectively. The results are compared with predictions from models of diffractive and nondiffractive interactions. Monte Carlo predictions based on the HERA diffractive parton distribution functions agree well with the data when corrected for the effect of soft rescattering between the spectator partons.

    Search for W′ bosons decaying to a top and a bottom quark at s=13TeV in the hadronic final state

    , Physics Letters B, Vol: 820, Pages: 1-26, ISSN: 0370-2693

    A search is performed for W bosons decaying to a top and a bottom quark in the all-hadronic final state,in proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The analyzed data were collected bythe CMS experiment between 2016 and 2018 and correspond to an integrated luminosity of 137 fb−1.Deep neural network algorithms are used to identify the jet initiated by the bottom quark and thejet containing the decay products of the top quark when the W boson from the top quark decayshadronically. No excess above the estimated standard model background is observed. Upper limits onthe production cross sections of W bosons decaying to a top and a bottom quark are set. Both left- andright-handed W bosons with masses below 3.4 TeV are excluded at 95% confidence level, and the moststringent limits to date on W bosons decaying to a top and a bottom quark in the all-hadronic final stateare obtained.

    Constraints on the Initial State of Pb-Pb Collisions via Measurements of Z-Boson Yields and Azimuthal Anisotropy at sqrt[s_{NN}]=5.02  TeV.

    , Phys Rev Lett, Vol: 127

    The CMS experiment at the LHC has measured the differential cross sections of Z bosons decaying to pairs of leptons, as functions of transverse momentum and rapidity, in lead-lead collisions at a nucleon-nucleon center-of-mass energy of 5.02  TeV. The measured Z boson elliptic azimuthal anisotropy coefficient is compatible with zero, showing that Z bosons do not experience significant final-state interactions in the medium produced in the collision. Yields of Z bosons are compared to Glauber model predictions and are found to deviate from these expectations in peripheral collisions, indicating the presence of initial collision geometry and centrality selection effects. The precision of the measurement allows, for the first time, for a data-driven determination of the nucleon-nucleon integrated luminosity as a function of lead-lead centrality, thereby eliminating the need for its estimation based on a Glauber model.

    First measurement of the cross section for top quark pair productionwith additional charm jets using dileptonic final states in pp collisionsat √s = 13 TeV

    , Physics Letters B, Vol: 820, Pages: 1-30, ISSN: 0370-2693

    The first measurement of the inclusive cross section for top quark pairs (tt) produced in association withtwo additional charm jets is presented. The analysis uses the dileptonic final states of tt events producedin proton-proton collisions at a centre-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The data correspond to an integratedluminosity of 41.5 fb−1, recorded by the CMS experiment at the LHC. A new charm jet identificationalgorithm provides input to a neural network that is trained to distinguish among tt events with twoadditional charm (ttcc), bottom (ttbb), and light-flavour or gluon (ttLL) jets. By means of a templatefitting procedure, the inclusive ttcc, ttbb, and ttLL cross sections are simultaneously measured, togetherwith their ratios to the inclusive tt + two jets cross section. This provides measurements of the ttcc andttbb cross sections of 10.1 ± 1.2 (stat) ± 1.4 (syst) pb and 4.54 ± 0.35 (stat) ± 0.56 (syst) pb, respectively,in the full phase space. The results are compared and found to be consistent with predictions from twodifferent matrix element generators with next-to-leading order accuracy in quantum chromodynamics,interfaced with a parton shower simulation.

The absolute luminosity scale is measured for individual bunch crossings using beam-separation scans (the van der Meer method), with a relative precision of 1.3 and 1.0% in 2015 and 2016, respectively. The dominant sources of uncertainty are related to residual differences between the measured beam positions and the ones provided by the operational settings of the LHC magnets, the factorizability of the proton bunch spatial density functions in the coordinates transverse to the beam direction, and the modeling of the effect of electromagnetic interactions among protons in the colliding bunches.

    , Physical Review D: Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology, Vol: 104, Pages: 1-35, ISSN: 1550-2368

    Events where the two leading jets are separated by a pseudorapidity interval devoid of particle activity, known as jet-gap-jet events, are studied in proton-proton collisions at √s=13  TeV. The signature is expected from hard color-singlet exchange. Each of the highest transverse momentum (pT) jets must have pjetT>40  GeV and pseudorapidity 1.4<|ηjet|<4.7, with ηjet1ηjet2<0, where jet1 and jet2 are the leading and subleading jets in pT, respectively. The analysis is based on data collected by the CMS and TOTEM experiments during a low luminosity, high-β∗ run at the CERN LHC in 2015, with an integrated luminosity of 0.66  pb−1. Events with a low number of charged particles with pT>0.2  GeV in the interval |η|<1 between the jets are observed in excess of calculations that assume only color-exchange. The fraction of events produced via color-singlet exchange, fCSE, is measured as a function of pjet2T, the pseudorapidity difference between the two leading jets, and the azimuthal angular separation between the two leading jets. The fraction fCSE has values of 0.4–1.0%. The results are compared with previous measurements and with predictions from perturbative quantum chromodynamics. In addition, the first study of jet-gap-jet events detected in association with an intact proton using a subsample of events with an integrated luminosity of 0.40  pb−1 is presented. The intact protons are detected with the Roman pot detectors of the TOTEM experiment. The fCSE in this sample is 2.91±0.70(stat)+1.08−1.01(syst) times larger than that for inclusive dijet production in dijets with similar kinematics.

    Search for top squarks in final states with two top quarks and several light-flavor jets in proton-proton collisions at root s=13 TeV

    , Physical Review D: Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology, Vol: 104, Pages: 1-26, ISSN: 1550-2368

    Many new physics models, including versions of supersymmetry characterized by R-parity violation (RPV), compressed mass spectra, long decay chains, or additional hidden sectors, predict the production of events with top quarks, low missing transverse momentum, and many additional quarks or gluons. The results of a search for new physics in events with two top quarks and additional jets are reported. The search is performed using events with at least seven jets and exactly one electron or muon. No requirement on missing transverse momentum is imposed. The study is based on a sample of proton-proton collisions at √s=13TeV corresponding to 137  fb−1 of integrated luminosity collected with the CMS detector at the LHC in 2016–2018. The data are used to determine best fit values and upper limits on the cross section for pair production of top squarks in scenarios of RPV and stealth supersymmetry. Top squark masses up to 670 (870)  GeV are excluded at 95% confidence level for the RPV (stealth) scenario, and the maximum observed local signal significance is 2.8 standard deviations for the RPV scenario with top squark mass of 400  GeV.

    Performance of the MICE diagnostic system

    , Journal of Instrumentation, Vol: 16, Pages: P08046-P08046, ISSN: 1748-0221

    Muon beams of low emittance provide the basis for the intense,well-characterised neutrino beams of a neutrino factory and for multi-TeVlepton-antilepton collisions at a muon collider. The international MuonIonization Cooling Experiment (MICE) has demonstrated the principle ofionization cooling, the technique by which it is proposed to reduce thephase-space volume occupied by the muon beam at such facilities. This paperdocuments the performance of the detectors used in MICE to measure themuon-beam parameters, and the physical properties of the liquid hydrogen energyabsorber during running.

    Measurement of the azimuthal anisotropy of and mesons in PbPb collisions at sNN=5.02TeV

    , Physics Letters B, Vol: 819, Pages: 1-23, ISSN: 0370-2693

    The second-order Fourier coefficients (v2) characterizing the azimuthal distributions of Υ(1S) and Υ(2S)mesons produced in PbPb collisions at √sNN = 5.02 TeV are studied. The Υ mesons are reconstructed intheir dimuon decay channel, as measured by the CMS detector. The collected data set corresponds toan integrated luminosity of 1.7 nb−1. The scalar product method is used to extract the v2 coefficientsof the azimuthal distributions. Results are reported for the rapidity range |y| < 2.4, in the transversemomentum interval 0 < pT < 50 GeV/c, and in three centrality ranges of 10–30%, 30–50% and 50–90%.In contrast to the J/ψ mesons, the measured v2 values for the Υ mesons are found to be consistent withzero.

    Odderon Exchange from Elastic Scattering Differences between pp and pp[over ¯] Data at 1.96 TeV and from pp Forward Scattering Measurements.

    , Phys Rev Lett, Vol: 127

    We describe an analysis comparing the pp[over ¯] elastic cross section as measured by the D0 Collaboration at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV to that in pp collisions as measured by the TOTEM Collaboration at 2.76, 7, 8, and 13 TeV using a model-independent approach. The TOTEM cross sections, extrapolated to a center-of-mass energy of sqrt[s]=1.96  TeV, are compared with the D0 measurement in the region of the diffractive minimum and the second maximum of the pp cross section. The two data sets disagree at the 3.4σ level and thus provide evidence for the t-channel exchange of a colorless, C-odd gluonic compound, also known as the odderon. We combine these results with a TOTEM analysis of the same C-odd exchange based on the total cross section and the ratio of the real to imaginary parts of the forward elastic strong interaction scattering amplitude in pp scattering for which the significance is between 3.4σ and 4.6σ. The combined significance is larger than 5σ and is interpreted as the first observation of the exchange of a colorless, C-odd gluonic compound.

    Search for a heavy vector resonance decaying to a Z boson and a Higgs boson in proton-proton collisions at s√=13TeV

    , European Physical Journal C: Particles and Fields, Vol: 81, Pages: 1-31, ISSN: 1124-1861

    A search is presented for a heavy vector resonance decaying into a Z boson and the standard model Higgs boson, where the Z boson is identified through its leptonic decays to electrons, muons, or neutrinos, and the Higgs boson is identified through its hadronic decays. The search is performed in a Lorentz-boosted regime and is based on data collected from 2016 to 2018 at the CERN LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 137fb−1. Upper limits are derived on the production of a narrow heavy resonance Z′, and a mass below 3.5 and 3.7TeV is excluded at 95% confidence level in models where the heavy vector boson couples predominantly to fermions and to bosons, respectively. These are the most stringent limits placed on the Heavy Vector Triplet Z′ model to date. If the heavy vector boson couples exclusively to standard model bosons, upper limits on the product of the cross section and branching fraction are set between 23 and 0.3fb for a Z′ mass between 0.8 and 4.6TeV, respectively.

    Channeling efficiency reduction in high dose neutron irradiated silicon crystals for high energy and high intensity beam collimation and extraction

    , Journal of Instrumentation, Vol: 16

    The channeling process in bent silicon crystals are used since '70s to manipulate beams of high energy particles. During the last decade, several studies and experiments carried out by the UA9 Collaboration at CERN demonstrated the possibility to use bent crystals for beam collimation, extraction, focusing and splitting in particle accelerators. These crystals are subject to deterioration due to the interaction of the particles with the crystal lattice, degrading the beam steering performance. For this reason, robustness tests are crucial to estimate their reliability and operational lifetime. A ∼8% of reduction in channeling efficiency on crystals irradiated with 2.5•1021/cm2 thermal neutrons was measured and reported in this manuscript. Extrapolations to possible operational scenarios in high energy accelerators are also discussed.

    Search for singly and pair-produced leptoquarks coupling to third-generation fermions in proton-proton collisions at s=13 TeV

    , Physics Letters B, Vol: 819, Pages: 1-27, ISSN: 0370-2693

    A search for leptoquarks produced singly and in pairs in proton-proton collisions is presented. Weconsider the leptoquark (LQ) to be a scalar particle of charge −1/3e coupling to a top quark plus atau lepton (tτ) or a bottom quark plus a neutrino (bν), or a vector particle of charge +2/3e, coupling totν or bτ. These choices are motivated by models that can explain a series of anomalies observed in themeasurement of B meson decays. In this analysis the signatures tτνb and tτν are probed, using datarecorded by the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC at √s = 13 TeV and that correspond to an integratedluminosity of 137 fb−1. These signatures have not been previously explored in a dedicated search. Thedata are found to be in agreement with the standard model prediction. Lower limits at 95% confidencelevel are set on the LQ mass in the range 0.98–1.73 TeV, depending on the LQ spin and its coupling λ toa lepton and a quark, and assuming equal couplings for the two LQ decay modes considered. These arethe most stringent constraints to date on the existence of leptoquarks in this scenario.

    Search for the rare decay of the W boson into a pion and a photon in proton-proton collisions at s=13TeV

    , Physics Letters B, Vol: 819, Pages: 1-24, ISSN: 0370-2693

    A search is performed for the rare decay W± → π±γ in proton-proton collisions at √s = 13 TeV. Datacorresponding to an integrated luminosity of 137 fb−1 were collected during 2016 to 2018 with the CMSdetector. This analysis exploits a novel search strategy based on W boson production in top quark pairevents. An inclusive search for the W± → π±γ decay is not optimal at the LHC because of the hightrigger thresholds. Instead, a trigger selection is exploited in which the W boson originating from one ofthe top quarks is used to tag the event in a leptonic decay. The W boson emerging from the other topquark is used to search for the W± → π±γ signature. Such decays are characterized by an isolatedtrack pointing to a large energy deposit, and by an isolated photon of large transverse momentum.The presence of b quark jets reduces the background from the hadronization of light-flavor quarks andgluons. The W± → π±γ decay is not observed. An upper exclusion limit is set to this branching fraction,corresponding to 1.50 × 10−5 at 95% confidence level, whereas the expected upper exclusion limit is0.85+0.52−0.29 × 10−5.

    Search for charged Higgs bosons produced in vector boson fusion processes and decaying into vector boson pairs in proton–proton collisions at s√=13TeV

    , The European Physical Journal C, Vol: 81, Pages: 1-29, ISSN: 1434-6044

    A search for charged Higgs bosons produced in vector boson fusion processes and decaying into vector bosons, using proton–proton collisions at s√=13TeV at the LHC, is reported. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 137fb−1 collected with the CMS detector. Events are selected by requiring two or three electrons or muons, moderate missing transverse momentum, and two jets with a large rapidity separation and a large dijet mass. No excess of events with respect to the standard model background predictions is observed. Model independent upper limits at 95% confidence level are reported on the product of the cross section and branching fraction for vector boson fusion production of charged Higgs bosons as a function of mass, from 200 to 3000GeV. The results are interpreted in the context of the Georgi–Machacek model.

    Search for long-lived particles using displaced jets in proton-proton collisions at root s=13 TeV

    , Physical Review D: Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology, Vol: 104, Pages: 1-38, ISSN: 1550-2368

    An inclusive search is presented for long-lived particles using displaced jets. The search uses a data sample collected with the CMS detector at the CERN LHC in 2017 and 2018, from proton-proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV. The results of this search are combined with those of a previous search using a data sample collected with the CMS detector in 2016, yielding a total integrated luminosity of 132  fb−1. The analysis searches for the distinctive topology of displaced tracks and displaced vertices associated with a dijet system. For a simplified model, where pair-produced long-lived neutral particles decay into quark-antiquark pairs, pair production cross sections larger than 0.07 fb are excluded at 95% confidence level (C.L.) for long-lived particle masses larger than 500 GeV and mean proper decay lengths between 2 and 250 mm. For a model where the standard model-like Higgs boson decays to two long-lived scalar particles that each decays to a quark-antiquark pair, branching fractions larger than 1% are excluded at 95% C.L. for mean proper decay lengths between 1 mm and 340 mm. A group of supersymmetric models with pair-produced long-lived gluinos or top squarks decaying into various final-state topologies containing displaced jets is also tested. Gluino masses up to 2500 GeV and top squark masses up to 1600 GeV are excluded at 95% C.L. for mean proper decay lengths between 3 and 300 mm. The highest lower bounds on mass reach 2600 GeV for long-lived gluinos and 1800 GeV for long-lived top squarks. These are the most stringent limits to date on these models.Figure

    Search for resonant and nonresonant new phenomena in high-mass dilepton final states at root s=13 TeV

    , The Journal of High Energy Physics, Vol: 2021, Pages: 1-62, ISSN: 1029-8479

    A search is presented for physics beyond the standard model (SM) using electron or muon pairs with high invariant mass. A data set of proton-proton collisions collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC at s√ = 13 TeV from 2016 to 2018 corresponding to a total integrated luminosity of up to 140 fb−1 is analyzed. No significant deviation is observed with respect to the SM background expectations. Upper limits are presented on the ratio of the product of the production cross section and the branching fraction to dileptons of a new narrow resonance to that of the Z boson. These provide the most stringent lower limits to date on the masses for various spin-1 particles, spin-2 gravitons in the Randall-Sundrum model, as well as spin-1 mediators between the SM and dark matter particles. Lower limits on the ultraviolet cutoff parameter are set both for four-fermion contact interactions and for the Arkani-Hamed, Dimopoulos, and Dvali model with large extra dimensions. Lepton flavor universality is tested at the TeV scale for the first time by comparing the dimuon and dielectron mass spectra. No significant deviation from the SM expectation of unity is observed.

    Measurements of Higgs boson production cross sections and couplings in the diphoton decay channel at root s=13 TeV

    , The Journal of High Energy Physics, Vol: 2021, Pages: 1-87, ISSN: 1029-8479

    Measurements of Higgs boson production cross sections and couplings in events where the Higgs boson decays into a pair of photons are reported. Events are selected from a sample of proton-proton collisions at s√ = 13 TeV collected by the CMS detector at the LHC from 2016 to 2018, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 137 fb−1. Analysis categories enriched in Higgs boson events produced via gluon fusion, vector boson fusion, vector boson associated production, and production associated with top quarks are constructed. The total Higgs boson signal strength, relative to the standard model (SM) prediction, is measured to be 1.12±0.09. Other properties of the Higgs boson are measured, including SM signal strength modifiers, production cross sections, and its couplings to other particles. These include the most precise measurements of gluon fusion and vector boson fusion Higgs boson production in several different kinematic regions, the first measurement of Higgs boson production in association with a top quark pair in five regions of the Higgs boson transverse momentum, and an upper limit on the rate of Higgs boson production in association with a single top quark. All results are found to be in agreement with the SM expectations.

    Performance of the CMS muon trigger system in proton-proton collisions at √s = 13 TeV

    , Journal of Instrumentation, Vol: 16

    The muon trigger system of the CMS experiment uses a combination of hardware and software to identify events containing a muon. During Run 2 (covering 2015-2018) the LHC achieved instantaneous luminosities as high as 2 × 10 cm s while delivering proton-proton collisions at √s = 13 TeV. The challenge for the trigger system of the CMS experiment is to reduce the registered event rate from about 40 MHz to about 1 kHz. Significant improvements important for the success of the CMS physics program have been made to the muon trigger system via improved muon reconstruction and identification algorithms since the end of Run 1 and throughout the Run 2 data-taking period. The new algorithms maintain the acceptance of the muon triggers at the same or even lower rate throughout the data-taking period despite the increasing number of additional proton-proton interactions in each LHC bunch crossing. In this paper, the algorithms used in 2015 and 2016 and their improvements throughout 2017 and 2018 are described. Measurements of the CMS muon trigger performance for this data-taking period are presented, including efficiencies, transverse momentum resolution, trigger rates, and the purity of the selected muon sample. This paper focuses on the single- and double-muon triggers with the lowest sustainable transverse momentum thresholds used by CMS. The efficiency is measured in a transverse momentum range from 8 to several hundred GeV.

    MUSiC: a model-unspecific search for new physics in proton–proton collisions at s√=13TeV

    , The European Physical Journal C, Vol: 81, Pages: 1-49, ISSN: 1434-6044

    Results of the Model Unspecific Search in CMS (MUSiC), using proton–proton collision data recorded at the LHC at a centre-of-mass energy of 13TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9fb−1, are presented. The MUSiC analysis searches for anomalies that could be signatures of physics beyond the standard model. The analysis is based on the comparison of observed data with the standard model prediction, as determined from simulation, in several hundred final states and multiple kinematic distributions. Events containing at least one electron or muon are classified based on their final state topology, and an automated search algorithm surveys the observed data for deviations from the prediction. The sensitivity of the search is validated using multiple methods. No significant deviations from the predictions have been observed. For a wide range of final state topologies, agreement is found between the data and the standard model simulation. This analysis complements dedicated search analyses by significantly expanding the range of final states covered using a model independent approach with the largest data set to date to probe phase space regions beyond the reach of previous general searches.

    Measurement of the Wγ production cross section in proton-proton collisions at sqrt[s]=13  TeV and constraints on effective field theory coefficients

    , Physical Review Letters, Vol: 126, ISSN: 0031-9007

    A fiducial cross section for Wγ production in proton-proton collisions is measured at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV in 137  fb^{-1} of data collected using the CMS detector at the LHC. The W→eν and μν decay modes are used in a maximum-likelihood fit to the lepton-photon invariant mass distribution to extract the combined cross section. The measured cross section is compared with theoretical expectations at next-to-leading order in quantum chromodynamics. In addition, 95% confidence level intervals are reported for anomalous triple-gauge couplings within the framework of effective field theory.

    Observation of a new excited beauty strange baryon decaying to Ξ_{b}^{-}π^{+}π^{-}

    , Physical Review Letters, Vol: 126, ISSN: 0031-9007

    The Ξ_{b}^{-}π^{+}π^{-} invariant mass spectrum is investigated with an event sample of proton-proton collisions at sqrt[s]=13  TeV, collected by the CMS experiment at the LHC in 2016-2018 and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 140  fb^{-1}. The ground state Ξ_{b}^{-} is reconstructed via its decays to J/ψΞ^{-} and J/ψΛK^{-}. A narrow resonance, labeled Ξ_{b}(6100)^{-}, is observed at a Ξ_{b}^{-}π^{+}π^{-} invariant mass of 6100.3±0.2(stat)±0.1(syst)±0.6(Ξ_{b}^{-})  MeV, where the last uncertainty reflects the precision of the Ξ_{b}^{-} baryon mass. The upper limit on the Ξ_{b}(6100)^{-} natural width is determined to be 1.9  MeV at 95% confidence level. The low Ξ_{b}(6100)^{-} signal yield observed in data does not allow a measurement of the quantum numbers of the new state. However, following analogies with the established excited Ξ_{c} baryon states, the new Ξ_{b}(6100)^{-} resonance and its decay sequence are consistent with the orbitally excited Ξ_{b}^{-} baryon, with spin and parity quantum numbers J^{P}=3/2^{-}.

    First T2K measurement of transverse kinematic imbalance in the muon-neutrino charged-current single-π+ production channel containing at least one proton

    , Physical Review D, Vol: 103, Pages: 1-27, ISSN: 2470-0010

    This paper reports the first T2K measurement of the transverse kinematic imbalance in the single-π+ production channel of neutrino interactions. We measure the differential cross sections in the muon-neutrino charged-current interaction on hydrocarbon with a single π+ and at least one proton in the final state, at the ND280 off axis near detector of the T2K experiment. The extracted cross sections are compared to the predictions from different neutrino-nucleus interaction event generators. Overall, the results show a preference for models that have a more realistic treatment of nuclear medium effects including the initial nuclear state and final-state interactions.

    Improved constraints on neutrino mixing from the T2K experiment with 3.13×1021 protons on target

    , Physical Review D, Vol: 103, Pages: 1-59, ISSN: 2470-0010

    The T2K experiment reports updated measurements of neutrino and antineutrino oscillations using both appearance and disappearance channels. This result comes from an exposure of 14.9(16.4)×1020 protons on target in neutrino (antineutrino) mode. Significant improvements have been made to the neutrino interaction model and far detector reconstruction. An extensive set of simulated data studies have also been performed to quantify the effect interaction model uncertainties have on the T2K oscillation parameter sensitivity. T2K performs multiple oscillation analyses that present both frequentist and Bayesian intervals for the Pontecorvo-Maki-Nakagawa-Sakata parameters. For fits including a constraint on sin2θ13 from reactor data and assuming normal mass ordering T2K measures sin2θ23=0.53+0.03−0.04 and Δm232=(2.45±0.07)×10−3  eV2 c−4. The Bayesian analyses show a weak preference for normal mass ordering (89% posterior probability) and the upper sin2θ23 octant (80% posterior probability), with a uniform prior probability assumed in both cases. The T2K data exclude CP conservation in neutrino oscillations at the 2σ level.
