PARTICLE PHYSICS SEMINAR TODAY
Monday October 23, 2017
Speaker: Andrew Mastbaum (UChicago)
Title: The Short-Baseline Neutrino Program
Abstract: A series of anomalous measurements in the neutrino sector may be hinting at the existence of an eV-scale sterile neutrino, an exciting possibility with significant implications. The Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) Program at Fermilab aims to definitively address this question, using a set of three high-precision liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) detectors situated in the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam, to search for short-range oscillations. I will briefly review the existing experimental evidence, introduce the SBN detectors, and discuss the status of the program and progress towards our physics goals.
