# Reproducing the OPERA result

Are there any other facilities that would be capable of independantly verifying the opera result? In other words, a completely different source/detector for $\nu_{\mu}$ beams?

Alternatively, there might be another source that could send a beam to the same detector at Gran Sasso, with a different baseline, looking to verify the value of $\frac {v-c}{c}$ with a different value of $\delta t$?

• T2K is running right now. They might (probably) need to improve their understanding of the distance and timing.
• LBNE is still in the planning stages, but will have a longer baseline which could be very helpful

disclaimer: I am vaguely involved in LBNE--specifically doing MC work for the near detector design.

@lurscher: No absolute value there, and they quote their $\delta t$ as negative. The reason it wasn't a huge circus like the OPERA number is that their error bars were big, so it is only a 1.8$\sigma$ result. –  dmckee Sep 26 '11 at 17:56
