Description
PROSPECT is the Precision Oscillation and Spectrum measurement of electron antineutrinos from the the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. We are carrying out a high statistics measurement of the HFIR neutrino spectrum shape, in a finely segmented detector that will be sensitive to sterile neutrino oscillations at the 1eV mass scale. First data will be taken in the Spring of 2018.
