Description

NOvA is a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment using Fermilab's 700 kW NuMI muon neutrino beam. Two functionally identical scintillator detectors are placed off the beam axis, separated by 810 km oscillation baseline. Both detectors have high active material fractions and are finely segmented allowing for precise identification and analysis of neutrino interactions. By observing both the disappearance of muon (anti)neutrinos and appearance of electron (anti)neutrinos in the beam, NOvA can impose constraints on the yet undetermined parameters of neutrino oscillation phenomenon, such as the neutrino mass ordering, CP violation and the octant of the large mixing angle. NOvA also studies neutral-current neutrino interactions, thus extending its scope beyond the standard three-flavor paradigm. This talk will present the latest NOvA results with the complete neutrino data sample up to date and first antineutrino data collected since February 2017. Future plans and prospects, as well as expected physics reach will be discussed.
