Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment

The Daya Bay neutrino experiment is an exciting new project that will help us understand some of the fundamental properties of neutrinos and their role in the universe. There are strong evidences that neutrino oscillations have been observed in experiments studying solar neutrino, atmospheric neutrino, and reactor anti-neutrino. The last neutrino mixing angle, theta_13, has so far eluded experimental detection due to its surprisingly small value. The Daya Bay reactor neutrino experiment has an ambitious goal to measure theta_13 (or constrain its value) with a sensitivity at least an order of magnitude better than the current experimental limit. The value of theta_13 has important implications for the next generation neutrino-oscillation experiments.
