Abstract content

NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment measuring $\nu_{\mu}$ disappearance and $\nu_e$ appearance within the NuMI beam from Fermilab. The experiment uses a Near and a Far Detector placed 810 km away from each other and at 14 milliradians off the beam-axis resulting in an observed energy spectrum that peaks at 2 GeV, close to the oscillation maximum.

A combined $\nu_{\mu}$ + $\bar\nu_{\mu}$ disappearance result will be presented including NOvA's first collected anti-neutrino data for a total exposure of $16\times10^{20}$ protons-on-target which, in addition to an upgraded analysis, will enable the experiment to set new limits to the allowed regions for $\Delta m^2_{32}$ and sin$^2\theta_{23}$ and make a measurement of $\Delta m^2_{32}$ among the world's best.
