Title: Neutrinos: Challenges and Opportunities
Abstract: Neutrinos are one of the most abundant of all known particles in the universe, but yet the least understood ones. A rich neutrino physics program is underway, in the US and abroad, with the goal of significantly improving our knowledge of this sector.  In this colloquium I will revisit what sort of physics we expect to learn from neutrinos, and the challenges that we will need to overcome in order to do so. I will highlight the big questions in neutrino physics and the impact of future experiments in answering these.

 

Thursday, November 7th, 2019 in Physical Sciences room 110 at 3:30 PM.

Note: The traditional student-speaker chat will begin in Physical Sciences Room 147 at 3:00 PM. All students are welcome! Refreshments will be served.
