Neutrinos on Ice
  OKC colloquia

Tuesday 21 February 2017
from 13:15 to 14:30
at FA32
Speaker : Jason Koskinen (NBI / Copenhagen)
Abstract : The neutrino is one of the most numerous and least understood of the known fundamental particles, and through oscillation might be responsible for the matter/anti-matter asymmetry in the Universe. Establishing the role(s) neutrino play in the formation of our Universe requires precision measurements of neutrino oscillations — and resolution of the so-called ‘sterile neutrino’ anomalies — that will push current and future physicists in the field. The DeepCore sub-array in conjunction with the IceCube Neutrino Telescope goes a long way towards filling important gaps in our fundamental understanding of neutrino properties, while also providing sensitivity to physics that are complementary to astrophysics and multi-messenger astronomy, e.g. dark matter searches. I will present recent results, current work, and future prospects on fundamental particle physics with the IceCube detector and next-generation upgrades known as IceCube-Gen2. (Host: Finley)
