Abstract

We are building a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment utilizing v̄e from the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station near Phoenix, Arizona. Once completed this experiment should reach sensitivities of Δm2 ≃ 1.5 × 10-3 eV2 and sin2 2θ ≃ 0.1 exploring mass differences about one order of magnitude smaller that the current limits. Our range of sensitivity will allow us to conclusively ascertain whether the atmospheric neutrino anomaly is caused by the ve - vx oscillations. We report on the status of the construction describing the main experimental challenges of the project.
