The Wisconsin accelerator-based experimental neutrino physics group acts to investigate the Intensity Frontier as part of the of the Wisconsin High Energy Physics program.

The objectives of the Intensity Frontier are to explore rare processes by creating very intense beams of particles that allow the probing of those processes. The NOvA and DUNE experiments use the most intense beams of neutrinos in the world to understand neutrino oscillations, the changing of neutrinos from one type into another as they propagate from their point of production. Neutrino oscillations may be able to explain the origin of our matter-dominated Universe.
