Physics and Astronomy Colloquium

Wednesday, September 9th 2009
3:35 pm:
Speaker: Daniel Cronin-Hennessy
Subject: Neutrinos@Minnesota

The universe as understood through particle physics has an underlying structure
that interconnects mass, flavor and chirality in complex ways.
The neutrino is a fundamental fermion that is uniquely suited as a probe of this structure. I will review some of the properties of Standard Model of particle physics that we wish to better understand and will present the physics potential and status of the NOvA experiment, a detector under construction in northern Minnesota that is designed to observe the phenomenon of neutrino oscillation.
