Nuclear Physics Seminar in Tate 301-20
Speaker: Jackson Olsen, University of Minnesota
Subject: Detecting Neutrinos from Supernovae

During a supernova vast numbers of neutrinos are released.
The energy of this neutrino emission dwarfs that of the light from the
explosion, yet the neutrinos are much more difficult to detect. I will
provide an overview of supernova neutrino detection techniques, and
discuss some of the information that might be learned from such a
detection.
