Physics Colloquium

"What Stubs and Sparkles Will Tell Us About Exploding Stars"

Presented by Kate Scholberg, Duke University

Tuesday, December 8, 2015, 3:30 pm — Large Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

When a massive star collapses at the end of its life, nearly all of the gravitational binding energy of the resulting remnant is released in the form of neutrinos. I will discuss the nature of the core-collapse neutrino burst and what we can learn about particle physics and about astrophysics from the detection of these neutrinos. I will cover supernova neutrino detection techniques in general, current supernova neutrino detectors, and prospects for specific future experiments.
