Determination of the θ 23 octant will be an important goal for the next generation of neutrino oscillation experiments, as it will show whether the true value of θ 23 lies in the high octant, θ 23 > 45°, or in the low octant, θ 23 < 45°. In this work we investigate the prospects of studying the θ 23 octant in future long baseline neutrino experiments. Using the GLoBES software, we study the sensitivity to θ 23 octant in terms of baseline length and beam sharing and use the LBNO setup as our benchmark. We also show the interference on the octant determination that arises from the unconstrained CP violation angle δ CP. In our results, we show the impact of matter effects on the octant determination potential and establish a connection between the beam sharing and mass hierarchy.

Determination of the θ23 octant in long baseline neutrino experiments within and beyond the standard model Das, C. R.; Pulido, João; Maalampi, Jukka; Vihonen, Sampsa (American Physical Society, 2018)The recent data indicate that the neutrino mixing angle θ 23 deviates from the maximal-mixing value of 45°, showing two nearly degenerate solutions, one in the lower octant (LO) ( θ 23 < 4 5 ° ) and one in the ...

Effects of triplet Higgs bosons in long baseline neutrino experiments Huitu, K.; Kärkkäinen, T. J.; Maalampi, Jukka; Vihonen, Sampsa (American Physical Society, 2018)The triplet scalars (Δ=Δ++, Δ+, Δ0) utilized in the so-called type-II seesaw model to explain the lightness of neutrinos, would generate nonstandard interactions (NSI) for a neutrino propagating in matter. We investigate ...
