Abstract:

The MINOS experiment has been designed to measure with high precision the neutrino oscillation parameters associated with the behaviour of  in the atmospheric neutrino oscillation sector. This article details the design of the detector and the measurement of the  survival probability as a function of energy after the neutrinos have travelled 735 km. Based on an exposure of 2.5 × 1020 protons on target, an updated, though preliminary, analysis is described here, in which 563  CC events have been observed with an expectation of 738.0 ± 30.0 (stat + syst) events. The energy dependence of the survival probability is consistent with the two-flavour neutrino oscillation hypothesis with [image omitted]   and sin2(223) > 0.84 (90% C.L.).
