Abstract

NOMAD is a neutrino oscillation experiment designed to search for ν<sub>τ</sub> appearance in the CERN-SPS wide band ν<sub>μ</sub> beam. Signal detection relies on the identification of ν<sub>τ</sub> charged current interactions using kinematic criteria. The analysis of the 1995 data sample yields no oscillation signal. Combining all studied τ decay modes, a limit of sin<sup>2</sup>2θ<sub>μτ</sub> < 4.2 x 10<sup>-3</sup> is obtained for large Δm<sup>2</sup> at the 90% confidence level.
