The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a 20-kiloton multi-purpose liquid scintillator detector under construction in a 700-meter underground laboratory in China. With its excellent energy resolution, sizeable fiducial volume, and remarkable background control, JUNO presents unique prospects to explore many important topics in neutrino and astroparticle physics.
By measuring the oscillation of reactor electron antineutrinos, JUNO can determine the neutrino mass ordering (NMO) and measure several oscillation parameters with sub-percent precision. Additionally, atmospheric neutrino measurements provide independent data for oscillation physics, consequently enhancing JUNO’s NMO sensitivity.
Besides oscillation measurements, JUNO has substantial potential for addressing a wide range of non-oscillation physics, such as detecting solar neutrinos, geo-neutrinos, supernova neutrinos, and diffuse supernova neutrino background, as well as searching for proton decay and other new physics beyond the Standard Model.
This talk presents JUNO’s physics potential in various domains.
