Title: eV-Scale Sterile Neutrino Search Using Eight Years of Atmospheric Muon Neutrino Data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory

Abstract

The results of a 3 + 1 sterile neutrino search using eight years of data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory are presented. A total of 305,735 muon neutrino events are analyzed in reconstructed energy-zenith space to test for signatures of a matter-enhanced oscillation that would occur given a sterile neutrino state with a mass-squared differences between 0.01 and 100 eV 2 . The best-fit point is found to be at sin 2 ( 2 θ 24 ) = 0.10 and Δ m 41 2 = 4.5 eV 2 , which is consistent with the no sterile neutrino hypothesis with a p value of 8.0%.

abstractNote = {The results of a 3+1 sterile neutrino search using eight years of data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory are presented. A total of 305,735 muon neutrino events are analyzed in reconstructed energy-zenith space to test for signatures of a matter-enhanced oscillation that would occur given a sterile neutrino state with a mass-squared differences between 0.01 and 100 eV2. The best-fit point is found to be at sin2(2θ24)=0.10 and Δm412=4.5 eV2, which is consistent with the no sterile neutrino hypothesis with a p value of 8.0%.},
