Topic: Particle Physics with Neutrinos
Neutrinos are ubiquitous. Not only are they produced by man-made accelerators and nuclear reactors but countless numbers of them are also provided by heaven constantly. Although they exist everywhere, their properties are not yet accurately understood because their interactions with matter are weak and, therefore, difficult to detect. What's interesting is that these elementary particles can change their type through quantum mechanical vibration into so-called “flavors,” which means that neutrinos have mass. Although the Standard Model of particle physics has passed numerous tests, it has not taken into account that neutrinos have mass. Therefore, through neutrino measurements, we can not only gain a deeper understanding of already known particle physics, but also find hints about new physics. In this seminar, I will introduce the basic principles of the neutrino experiments that I am involved with and report their current status. These include NEON, AMoRE, and IceCube experiments.
