Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment

The Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment is a China-based multinational particle physics project studying neutrinos. The multinational collaboration includes researchers from China, the United States, Taiwan, and the Czech Republic. The US side of the project is funded by the US Department of Energy's Office of High Energy Physics. The experiment studies neutrino oscillations and is designed to measure the mixing angle θ13 using antineutrinos produced by the reactors of the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant and the Ling Ao Nuclear Power Plant. Scientists are also interested in whether neutrinos are CP violators.

It is situated at Daya Bay, approximately 52 kilometers north of Hong Kong and 45 kilometers east of Shenzhen.

There is an affiliated project in the Aberdeen Tunnel Underground Laboratory in Hong Kong. It measures the neutrons produced by cosmic muons which may affect the Daya Bay Reactor Neutrino Experiment.
