Applied Physics/Physics Colloquium

Topic: 
Neutrino Oscillations: Past, Present and Future
Tuesday, November 10, 2015 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm
Venue: 
Hewlett 201
Speaker: 
Yifang Wang (Institute of High Energy Physics, China)
Abstract / Description: 
Neutrino oscillations had been one of the most successful stories in the history of particle physics. I will review the discovery of neutrino oscillation and confirmations afterwards. There are quite a number of neutrino experiments under operation now and many under planning. In particular, I will explain a reactor-based neutrino experiment, Daya Bay, for mixing angle theta-13 and its successor, JUNO experiment for the neutrino mass hierarchy.

 

Held Tuesdays at 4:30 pm in the William R. Hewlett Teaching Center, room 201.

Refreshments in the lobby of Varian Physics at 4:15 pm.
