Abstract

Our collaboration has installed a long baseline neutrino oscillation experiment at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station in Arizona. 12 tons of Gd loaded liquid scintillator, in a segmented detector, are used to search for v̄e ↔ v̄x oscillations at 740 m distance to three reactors. The anti-neutrino capture on the proton serves as detection reaction. The experiment is expected to reach a sensitivity of Δm2 > 1.3 · 10-3 eV2 and sin22Θ > 0.1. Our range of sensitivity is tuned to test the vμ ↔ ve solution of the atmospheric neutrino anomaly.
