Particle Physics Seminar

"Reactor Antineutrino Flux and Spectrum"

Presented by Mr. Chao Zhang, BNL

Thursday, January 7, 2016, 3:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Nuclear reactors are one of the most intense, pure, controllable, cost-effective, and well-understood sources of neutrinos. Reactors have played a major role in the study of neutrino oscillations, a phenomenon that indicates that neutrinos have mass and that neutrino flavors are quantum mechanical mixtures. Accurate knowledge of reactor antineutrino production was crucial for those reactor experiments to achieve their goals. With the newest measurements from Daya Bay, I will revisit our current understanding of reactor antineutrino flux and spectrum, and its implications to future experiments.
