Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Deciphering Majorana nature of sub-eV neutrinos by using their quantum statistical property
Time: 11:00 am
Place: 5280 Chamberlin
Speaker: C.S. Kim, Yonsei University
Abstract: Neutrinos are the only known elementary fermions that can exhibit Majorana nature. As per the ``practical Dirac-Majorana confusion theorem'' it is impossible to distinguish between Dirac and Majorana neutrinos via any kinematic tests when their masses are very small. However, it is also well known that Majorana neutrino and anti-neutrino present in the final state must obey the Fermi-Dirac statistics, irrespective of how small the mass of neutrino is. We propose a new method to search for Majorana neutrinos by exploiting their quantum statistical property.
