Description

The Daya Bay Neutrino Experiment, located in Shenzhen, China, will be probing the last unknown neutrino mixing angle $\theta_{13}$ with a sensitivity of 0.01 or better in $\sin^{2}2\theta_{13}$ at 90% C.L. through a measurement of the relative rates and energy spectra of reactor antineutrinos at different baselines. This measurement will provide a better understanding of the neutrino mixing matrix and give directions to future measurements of leptonic CP violation effects and the neutrino mass hierarchy. An overview on the experiment and its current progress will be presented.
