The CSU NOvA and T2K groups led by Profs. Norm Buchanan and Walter Toki, respectively, have published their latest results in Physical Review Letters ( Phys. Rev. Lett. 118, 151802 (2017), Phys. Rev. Lett. 118, 151801 (2017) ). The NOvA paper describes the non-maximal mixing result that is in tension with other neutrino experiments, while the T2K result is their first combined neutrino-antineutrino oscillation analysis. The editors of Physical Review Letters have listed both publications as "suggested reading". Both of the CSU neutrino groups are funded by the Department of Energy.
