The OPERA experiment, exposed to the CERN to Gran Sasso νµ beam, collected data from 2008 to 2012. Four oscillated ντ Charged Current interaction candidates have been detected in appearance mode, which are consistent with νµ → ντ oscillations at the atmospheric ∆m^2 within the “standard” three-neutrino framework. In this paper, the OPERA ντ appearance results are used to derive limits on the mixing parameters of a massive sterile neutrino.
