Abstract: When neutrinos propagate over long distances, the mass eigenstate componentsof a flavor eigenstate will become spatially separated due to their differentgroup velocities. This can happen over terrestrial distance scales if theneutrino energy is of order MeV and if the neutrino is localized in a quantummechanical sense to subatomic scales. For example, if the Heisenberguncertainty in the neutrino position is below 0.01 Angstrom, neutrinodecoherence can be observed in reactor neutrinos using a large liquidscintillator detector.
