Prednášajúci: prof. Livia Ludhová (RWTH Aachen + Forschungzentrum Juelich)

Názov prednášky: Solar and Geo Neutrinos

Termín: 25.2.2016, 14:00 hod., F1/364 

Neutrino physics continues to be a very active research field, full of opened fundamental questions reaching even beyond the SM and towards possible new physics.  Solar neutrinos have played a fundamental historical role in the discovery of the phenomenon of neutrino oscillations (just awarded Nobel Prize in the last year!) and thus non-zero neutrino mass. Even today, the study of solar neutrinos provides an important insight both into the neutrino as well as into the stellar and solar physics. Neutrino geoscience is a newly born interdisciplinary science having as its main aim determination of the Earth's radiogenic heat through measurement of antineutrinos released in the decays of long-lived radioactive elements inside the Earth (geoneutrinos). The seminar will cover the status-of-art of the present day solar and geo neutrino physics, as well as a more detailed review of the recent results from Borexino experiment, 300 ton liquid scintillator detector placed deep underground in the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, near L'Aquila town in central Italy.
