Core Collapse Supernova Neutrino Detection
Date: Wednesday, April 21st
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin
Speaker: Kate Scholberg, Duke University
Abstract: When a massive star collapses at the end of its life, nearly all of the gravitational binding energy of the resulting remnant is released in the form of neutrinos. I will discuss the nature of the core collapse neutrino burst and what we can learn from its detection. I will cover supernova neutrino detection techniques, and prospects for future supernova-neutrino-sensitive experiments.
