Title: Probing active to sterile neutrino oscillations in the LENS detector

Abstract

Sterile neutrino ({nu}{sub s}) conversion in meter scale baselines can be sensitively probed using monoenergetic, sub-MeV, flavor-pure {nu}{sub e}'s from an artificial Megacurie source and the unique technology of the LENS low energy solar {nu}{sub e} detector. Active-sterile oscillations can be directly observed in the granular LENS detector itself to critically test and extend results of short baseline accelerator and reactor experiments.
