Neutrinos from the Sky and Through the Earth

December 13, 2016 - 4:00pm
Speaker: 
Kate Scholberg
Institution: 
Duke University

The progress in neutrino physics over the past fifteen years has been tremendous: we have learned that neutrinos have mass and change flavor. This discovery won the 2015 Nobel Prize. I will pick out one of the threads of the story-- the measurement of flavor oscillation in neutrinos produced by cosmic ray showers in the atmosphere, and further measurements by long-baseline beam experiments. In this talk, I will present the latest results from the Super-Kamiokande and T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) long-baseline experiments, and will discuss how the next generation of high-intensity beam experiments will address some of the remaining puzzles.
