MINOS and Daya Bay join forces to narrow the window on sterile neutrinos

(Chinese Academy of Sciences Headquarters) MINOS has made world-leading measurements to study how these neutrinos disappear as they travel between the two detectors. The existence of a sterile neutrino could cause some of these muon neutrinos to disappear at a faster rate than one would expect if sterile neutrinos do not exist. Scientists working on the MINOS experiment have shown that this does not happen.
