Advice on the most relevant oscillation experiments to mention in my report?

  1. May 24, 2012 #1
    I'm busy writing something about neutrino oscillation - nothing big, just a few thousand words, a bit of theory, a bit of experiment. I'm trying to do a section summarising the diffierent types of experiments - ie. ones involving solar, atmospheric, reactor and accelerator neutrinos - but there have been so many and I don't really know what to include.

    I'm trying to include experiments that had the biggest impact, whether in terms of being groundbreaking in the development of the subject, or in terms of providing the current best results.

    This is my current list. The ones marked with a (*) have not yet been written about.

    solar:
    homestake/gallex/GNO, Kamiokande - Super kamiokande, SNO

    atmospheric:
    IMB*, Super-Kamiokande

    reactor:
    CHOOZ, Palo Verde*, KamLAND*, DAYA BAY*

    accelerator:
    K2K, MINOS, OPERA*, LSND*

    What do you think of this?
    Which experiments must get a mention?
