The investigation of the oscillation pattern induced by the sterile neutrinos might determine the oscillation parameters, and at the same time, allow to probe CPT symmetry in the leptonic sector through neutrino– antineutrino mass inequality. We propose to use a large scintillation detector like JUNO or LENA to detect electron neutrinos and electron antineutrinos from MCi electron capture or beta decay sources. Our calculations indicate that such an experiment is realistic and could be performed in parallel to the current research plans for JUNO and RENO. Requiring at least 5σ confidence level and assuming the values of the oscillation parameters indicated by the current global fit, we would be able to detect neutrino–antineutrino mass inequality of the order of 0.5% or larger, which would imply a signal of CPT anomalies.

Theoretical Calculations for Electron Spectra and Neutrino-Nucleus Scattering in Context of Reactor Antineutrino and Gallium Anomalies Kostensalo, Joel (2021)This thesis consists of fourteen publications and an introductory part on rare beta decays and neutrino-nucleus scattering. The overarching theme of this work is to provide state-of-the-art theoretical calculations for ...
Loo, Kai; Novikov, Yu. N.; Smirnov, M. V.; Trzaska, Wladyslaw; Wurm, M. (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2017)The verification of the sterile neutrino hypothesis and, if confirmed, the determination of the relevant oscillation parameters is one of the goals of the neutrino physics in near future. We propose to search for the sterile ...
Loo, Kai; Novikov, Yu N.; Smirnov, Mikhail; Trzaska, Wladyslaw; Wurm, M. (Institute of Physics Publishing Ltd., 2016)We propose to probe both the CPT and CP violation together with the search for sterile neutrinos in one do-it-all experiment. This omnibus experiment would utilize neutrino oscillometry with large scintillator detectors ...
Kostensalo, Joel; Suhonen, Jouni (American Institute of Physics, 2019)The reactor antineutrino and the gallium anomalies have been long unexplained. Possible explanations for both of these anomalies include new physics, such as the existence of one or more eV-scale sterile neutrino. However, ...
