Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The OPERA experiment was designed to observe ν µ → ν τ oscillations through τ appearance on the CERN Neutrino to Gran Sasso (CNGS) beam over a baseline of 730 km. OPERA was a hybrid experiment composed of lead plates and emulsion layers acting as a target for neutrino interactions. The experiment was complemented with electronic detectors: scintillator strips used as Target Trackers and muon spectrometers. A review of the OPERA final results is presented in this paper.
