Paralell Session: Neutrinos
- Kristian Moffat (IPPP)
Mr Matheus Hostert (Durham University)
In this talk we will briefly review our understanding of neutrino oscillations and discuss some of the anomalies at short baseline experiments. These anomalies point towards the existence of a sterile neutrino with a mass at the eV scale and have been the motivation behind many of the efforts in the neutrino community. Some of the motivations and implications of such a sterile are discussed....
Mr Nick Prouse (Southampton & Queen Mary University of London)
We present a study into the extent that upcoming precision neutrino oscillation experiments will exclude one of the most predictive models of neutrino mass and mixing: the Littlest Seesaw. This model provides a good fit to current data, predicting eight observables from two input parameters, and provide new assessments of its predictions and their correlations. The ability to exclude this...
Mr Tarso Franarin (King's College London)
Future dark matter detectors plan to have sensitivities such that solar neutrinos will start to become a problematic background. In this work, we show that a polarized helium-3 detector would, in principle, be able to eliminate 98% of these events when the orientation of the polarization axis is antiparallel to the direction of the Sun. We comment on the possible improvement in sensitivity of...
