Neutrino Oscillations, an aperture to look through Beyond Standard Model (BSM) Physics

Tuesday March 28, 2023
2:00 pm

 Presenter:  Tousif Reza (UNM)
 Series:  Nuclear, Particle, Astroparticle and Cosmology (NUPAC) Seminars
 Abstract:  Neutrinos are elementary particles with no electric and color charges and interact weakly with other particles. According to our current knowledge, neutrinos are the second most abundant particle after photons in the universe. Their interpretation and understanding are of great importance for Particle Physics, Astrophysics, Cosmology, and inter-related disciplines; however, the experimental study is not easy at all because of their rare interactions with matter. After long-standing efforts, observations of neutrino oscillation at SNO and Super-kamioKande have revealed that neutrinos have non-zero, tiny masses, a first discovery of physics beyond the Standard Model (SM). In this talk, I will highlight a brief overview of neutrino physics, will discuss oscillation phenomenology in a vacuum, and matter environment and finally, I will talk about the neutrino mass from the Double Beta Decay (0νββ), a rare process violating lepton number conservation of SM, has a possible connection to Dirac and Majorana nature of neutrinos and matter-antimatter asymmetry of the universe.
