By Matthew Joseph Mottram

The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this paintings describes an research of the information from the second one flight of the Antarctica Impulsive brief Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne test that searches for radio signs originating from ultra-high strength neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. the quest for ultrahigh strength neutrinos of astrophysical beginning is without doubt one of the extraordinary experimental demanding situations of the twenty first century. The ANITA test was once designed to be the main delicate device to ultra-high power neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave heritage. The method and result of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are awarded within the thesis.

Observation of ν_μ→ν_e Oscillation in the T2K Experiment (Springer Theses)

During this thesis theauthor contributes to the research of neutrino beam information accumulated among 2010and 2013 to identify νμ→νe  events on the Super-Kamiokande detector. In particular,the writer improves the pion–nucleus interplay uncertainty, that's one ofthe dominant systematic mistakes assets in T2K neutrino oscillation size.
