GLoBES Adopted as the Official Sensitivity Tool of LBNE

      The GLoBES (General Long Baseline Experiment Simulator) software package, developed by Virginia Tech Professor Patrick Huber and his colleagues, has long been the industry standard for evaluating the sensitivity of future neutrino oscillation experiments. Recently it was adopted as the official sensitivity tool of the scientific collaboration of the Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment (known as LBNE), which is planning to study neutrino oscillation in a beam of neutrinos send from Fermilab in Illinois to a large underground detector in Lead, South Dakota.

      The LBNE Scientific Collaboration which involves more than 280 scientists and engineers from 54 institutions, including Professor Jonathan Link of Virginia Tech, is working in the planning phase of the projected $1 billion experiment. Through a detailed study of neutrino ocillations associated with the mixing angle θ13 they hope to improve our understanding of the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe, and to determine the hierarchy of neutrino masses.
