The results from MiniBooNE have not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal but a (https://arxiv.org/abs/1805.12028) pre-press version of the paper was made available by researchers on the pre-print server arXiv.
While MiniBooNE used neutrinos to find the sterile neutrino, LSND used antineutrinos - the antimatter equivalent.

Specifically, for the case of the MiniBooNE processes, we concentrate on the channels where [alpha] = [mu] and [beta] = e (for NSI scattering involving tau neutrinos, see [72,73]).

The KARMEN experiment [56] was another player in this debate, but on the other side, since it did not detect the same hints of LSND and MiniBooNE. It was a segmented liquid-scintillator detector; the segmentation, technically the more distinctive feature of the set-up, was realized with 1.5 mm thick lucite sheets which ensured the transport of the light to the photomultipliers via total internal reflection.
A search for [v.sub.[mu]] [right arrow] [v.sub.e] appearance at high [DELTA][m.sup.2], hence short-baseline, can be performed to address the LSND [61] and MiniBooNE [78] signals if the DAE[delta]ALUS configuration uses a large scintillator detector such as LENA [75].
In addition to the LSND and MiniBooNE results, which involve electron (anti)neutrino appearance in [v.sub.[mu]], [[bar.v].sub.[mu]] beams, other anomalies in disappearance mode were found to fit the same sterile neutrino scenario at the eV scale.

Few experimental results cannot be accommodated in this framework: the LSND anomaly [21] (further investigated by MiniBooNE [22]) as well as a possible neutrino deficit observed in reactor [23] and Gallium measurements with very intense (Mci) radioactive neutrino sources [24].
