We report measurements by the T2K experiment of the parameters θ23 and Δm232 governing the disappearance of muon neutrinos and antineutrinos in the three-flavor neutrino oscillation model. Utilizing the ability of the experiment to run with either a mainly neutrino or a mainly antineutrino beam, the parameters are measured separately for neutrinos and antineutrinos. Using 7.482×1020 POT in neutrino running mode and 7.471×1020 POT in antineutrino mode, T2K obtained sin2(θ23)=0.51+0.08−0.07 and Δm232=2.53+0.15−0.13×10−3 eV2/c4 for neutrinos, and sin2(¯θ23)=0.42+0.25−0.07 and Δ¯m232=2.55+0.33−0.27×10−3 eV2/c4 for antineutrinos (assuming normal mass ordering). No significant differences between the values of the parameters describing the disappearance of muon neutrinos and antineutrinos were observed Show more
