A Multi-detector program will address the unexplained anomalies which together could be hinting at new physics (steriles?) .
- Most common interpretation is as evidence for high mass-squared neutrino oscillations and the existence of one or more additional, mostly “sterile” neutrino states with masses at or below a few eV.
- While each of these measurements taken separately lack the significance to claim a discovery, together these signals could be hinting at important new physics that requires further exploration
Experimental anomalies ranging in significance (2.8–3.8σ) have been reported from a variety of experiments studying neutrinos over baselines less than 1 km. Current anomalies from: accelerator beams radioactive sources reactor neutrinos
