Shedding light on LMA-Dark solar neutrino solution by medium baseline reactor experiments: JUNO and RENO-50

Abstract

In the presence of Non-Standard neutral current Interactions (NSI) a new solution to solar neutrino anomaly with cos2θ12<0\cos 2\theta_{12}<0 appears. We investigate how this solution can be tested by upcoming intermediate baseline reactor experiments, JUNO and RENO-50. We point out a degeneracy between the two solutions when both hierarchy and the θ12\theta_{12} octant are flipped. We then comment on how this degeneracy can be partially lifted by long baseline experiments sensitive to matter effects such as the NOvA experiment.Comment: 9 pages, 2 figure
