Departmental Colloquium


Using Electron Bubbles to Detect Solar Neutrinos

Raphael Galea
Columbia University

Time
 
Tue. October 18, 2005     11:30 AM     Stirling A

Abstract
 

The measurements made in Solar Neutrino physics have produced some of the most exciting results in physics in the past decade. Yet, over 90% of the solar neutrino flux, those coming from proton-proton fusion reactions in the sun, have not been detected in real time. This talk will outline the design of a novel new detector which is being developed to measure these low energy neutrinos from the sun. This tracking detector will use Cryogenic Noble liquids and the properties of 'electron bubbles' to detect these elusive particles.

Refreshments will be available after the talk. Dr Galea is a short-listed candidate for the Tier II Canada Research Chair in Particle Astrophysics.
