Daya Bay Experiment

[experiment webpage] [selected publications]

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment is a multinational project studying neutrino oscillations. The international collaboration includes researchers from China, the United States, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Russia, and the Czech Republic.

It is situated at Daya Bay in southern China, approximately 52 kilometers northeast of Hong Kong and 45 kilometers east of Shenzhen.

The experiment was the first in the world to measure reactor neutrino oscillation parameter θ13 in 2012.
