Neutrino Oscillation Detection by KM3

High-energy neutrino detectors can be used to detect neutrino oscillations.


High-energy neutrino astronomy by using very distant sources of neutrinos has the possibility of improving neutrino oscillation measurements or limits by about 5 orders of magnitude.

Scientific Motivation

The fundamental scientific motivation for neutrino oscillation detection is the basic physics. There appears to be a need for this based upon the Solar neutrino problem and possibly the atmospheric neutrino anomaly.

One detects the relative abundance of all three flavors of neutrinos.
