Physics Colloquium: "Neutrino and Neutrinoless Physics with SNO+"
Start Date: 4/25/2013Start Time: 3:30 PM
End Date: 4/25/2013End Time: 4:30 PM

Event Description
Speaker: Joshua R. Klein, University of Pennsylvania

Abstract: The discovery of neutrino mass and mixing more than a decade ago has opened up a new regime of the subatomic world, which still remains largely unexplored. Neutrinos can now allow us to search for new fundamental interactions, measure the composition of the Earth's crust and the core of the Sun, or tell us about supernovae. But as neutral particles, neutrinos may be also be able to be their own antiparticle. If so, they may help to explain why the Universe is made of matter, and not equal parts matter and antimatter. I will discuss the SNO+ experiment, which will measure neutrinos from the Earth and sky but will also seek to determine whether the neutrino and antineutrino are really the same thing.
