MINOS is a 735 km long precision neutrino oscillation experiment from Fermilab to Soudan, MN
The detectors are steel/scintillator sandwich tracking calorimeters
MINOS is now a running experiment and has been receiving  beam from the NuMI beam-line for 6 months
Several stages of calibration are necessary to ensure that…
MINOS will, amongst other things, make a precision measurement of atmospheric sector neutrino oscillation parameters…Pedro Ochoa will elaborate…
