Uncovering the nature of neutrinos via double beta decay
Date: Friday, May 4th
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin
Speaker: Allen Caldwell, Director, Max Planck Institute for Physics, Munich, Germany
Abstract: Whether or not the neutrino is a Majorana particle is a fundamental question in particle physics. The search for neutrinoless double beta decay is a direct attempt to answer this question. The GERDA experiment, which started taking data last year, is such a search. After an introduction, the experiment status and plans will be described.
