Neutrino Oscillation Results from the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory

Scott Oser

The Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) has determined the flavor content of the 8B solar neutrino flux by measuring the rates of charged current and neutral current neutrino interactions on deuterium. These results directly demonstrate neutrino flavor transformation at greater than 5 σ significance. The total flux of 8B neutrinos is found to be in good agreement with solar model predictions. Measurements of the day and night neutrino energy spectra probe models of neutrino oscillation. A global fit of SNO data and results from other solar neutrino experiments to neutrino oscillation models strongly favors the Large Mixing Angle (LMA) MSW solution.
