Academic Lecture: BSM physics in neutrino scattering


Title: BSM physics in neutrino scattering 
Speaker:Dr. Xunjie Xu (Max-Planck-Institut fur Kernphysik) 
Time: 3:30 pm, July 3rd, 2018 (Tuesday) 
Place: Seminar room 319 

Abstract: Neutrinos interact very weakly with matter and had been very difficult to detect in the past. Future neutrino scattering experiments (e.g. Coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering) can not only measure neutrino interactions to high precision, but also be very sensitive to new physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). In this talk, I am going to introduce both neutrino-nucleus and neutrino-electron scattering experiments. I will show their sensitivities in searching for BSM physics and the potential to solve the Dirac/Majorana nature problem of neutrinos in the presence of new physics.
