OPERA is a long baseline neutrino experiment aiming at the first direct observation of the tau neutrino appearance in an almost pure muon neutrino beam. The detector, installed in the hall C of the Gran Sasso National Laboratory, 730 km away from the beam source, is a hybrid apparatus combining nuclear emulsion based detector units together with electronic trackers. Furthermore two spectrometers are used in order to reconstruct charge and momentum of penetrating muon particles. In the first 4 years of data taking OPERA collected 14.2 x 10(19) protons on target (p.o.t.) and 13377 neutrino interactions. In this paper the status of the analysis will be presented together with the oscillation search results.

Abstract

OPERA is a long baseline neutrino experiment aiming at the first direct observation of the tau neutrino appearance in an almost pure muon neutrino beam. The detector, installed in the hall C of the Gran Sasso National Laboratory, 730 km away from the beam source, is a hybrid apparatus combining nuclear emulsion based detector units together with electronic trackers. Furthermore two spectrometers are used in order to reconstruct charge and momentum of penetrating muon particles. In the first 4 years of data taking OPERA collected 14.2 x 10(19) protons on target (p.o.t.) and 13377 neutrino interactions. In this paper the status of the analysis will be presented together with the oscillation search results.
