Departmental Colloquium


The Year of the Neutrino

Joseph Formaggio
University of Washington

Time
 
Tue. August 10, 2004     10:30 AM     Stirling C

Abstract
 

The past few years have been an incredible time for neutrino physics. Recent results for the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory in Canada and from the KamLAND experiment in Japan have changed the landscape of weak interactions by providing overwhelming evidence that neutrinos from the sun undergo oscillations -the quantum mechanical process by which a neutrino of one type spontaneously changes into another. During my talk, I will review the current status of neutrino oscillations, with special emphasis on the recent solar neutrino experimental results. The talk will then continue with how the current results have opened the door to new questions regarding this elusive particle.

Joseph Formaggio is a candidate for the SNOLAB Tier II CRC position and will be available for individual meetings. Refreshments will be available after the talk.
