"Neutrinos at the Intensity Frontier"

3:15pm, RLM 11.204

Coffee and cookies will be served just before the colloquium in RLM 11.204.

Abstract:

Neutrinos are among the most puzzling and exciting constituents of matter. These ghostly, mysterious particles have offered some of our first glimpses beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. Neutrinos have been found to spontaneously change their type and the study of these "oscillations" is a critical part of the future United States high energy program. Some of the most important challenges in a precision oscillation experiment will be discussed, with emphasis on neutrino scattering cross sections.
