CNGS neutrino beam for long base-line experiments: present status and perspectives

Abstract : The CERN to Gran Sasso neutrino facility (CNGS) is designed to study the νμ→ντ oscillation with a high intensity neutrino beam sent to the ICARUS and OPERA long base-line experiments searching for ντ appearance at LNGS. An ambitious and demanding project aimed to the protection of electronics against radiation has been devised and carried out in a very short time in 2008. Therefore the facility ran smoothly from June 18th to November 3rd 2008 delivering almost 2.0dot operator1019 proton on target. As a successive phase the CNGS facility could be addressed to the search of νμ→νe subleading transitions driven by θ13 mixing angle with a more intense off-axis neutrino beam. An increase of nearly an order of magnitude with respect to T2K expected sensitivity should be reached by exposing not, vert, similar 20 kt liquid Argon TPC detector shallow-depth at the Gran Sasso site.
