Neutrino Physics: Exploring Matter and the Universe
Venue: Anglia Ruskin University (Mab 221) | City: Chelmsford, United Kingdom
Speaker: Dr Teppei Katori, Kings College London
Neutrino physics is one of the most flourishing fields in particle physics. Neutrinos are elementary particles of nature, and scientists have found they have mass. This was the topic of the 2015 Nobel prize, and this is the only clear evidence beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Scientists all over the world study properties of neutrinos, or use neutrinos as a new tool to investigate astrophysical objects and fundamental properties of the universe. In this talk, Dr Katori will review particle physics and the status of the most exciting neutrino projects in the world.
