PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM: Why are Neutrinos so Light? Early Results from the EXO Double Beta Decay Experiment

Speaker: Carter Hall, UMD Abstract: Neutrinos are perhaps the most mysterious and intriguing fundamental particles known to exist in nature. It took 40 years to determine that they have tiny, non-zero masses, and even today neutrino mass properties can only be inferred indirectly through quantum mechanical interference effects. So why should nature give us a particle which is so extraordinarily light, and yet not exactly massless? Our best hope to unravel this puzzle is to address a closely related question: does the neutrino act as its own anti-particle?...Full abstract: {Will appear in FYI on Oct 11, 2011
