Physics Department Colloquium
Time: 4:00 PM
Place: 2241 Chamberlin Hall (coffee at 330 pm)
Speaker: Joseph Formaggio, MIT
Abstract: Neutrino oscillation experiments performed throughout the latter half of the twentieth century have yielded valuable information on the nature of neutrino masses and mixings. The evidence gathered has provided the first positive evidence for physics beyond the standard model. As the next century begins, a new suite of precision experiments will come online to provide greater insight into the physics and significance of neutrino mass. This talk will review our current state of knowledge on neutrino masses, and how new experiments will complement that knowledge in years to come.
