"The Little Neutral One"

Presented by Mary Bishai, BNL

Friday, June 14, 2019, 12:30 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

In the past 50 years, the study of neutrinos, the lightest, yet most abundant of the known elementary particles has revealed cracks in the Standard Model of Particle Physics. Could neutrinos explain the matter anti-matter asymmetry in our Universe? To answer these questions we need to better understand the properties of these elusive polymorphs. I will present a brief history of the neutrino, what we have learnt so far about it, and what we hope to learn in the next couple of decades from some of the most ambitious experiments in particle physics.
