Feasibility study of an accelerator neutrino experiment in China

Not scheduled


Poster Neutrino Physics T04: Neutrino Physics


Sampsa Vihonen (Sun Yat-sen University)


China has been a stage to a very successful reactor-based neutrino physics program for many years. In this talk, we take a look at the era of Chinese neutrino physics after the conclusion of JUNO and investigate whether there could be a future accelerator-based neutrino experiment in China. We review several notable research laboratory sites that could be considered as candidates for the neutrino source and detector. The physics prospects of these laboratories are then studied in two important physics questions: the precision measurement of the Dirac {\em CP} phase and the search for non-standard neutrino interactions in matter. We finally present a case-study where a neutrino beam conceived by muon decay is sent from the future Super Proton-Proton Collider facility to the China JinPing Laboratory, forming a 1739~km baseline. Our study shows the synergies and limitations of such experiment.
