Upcoming Events

Josh Albert (Indiana University)
Physics 278
Date: Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 2:00pm

Since the earliest measurements of neutrinos, neutron interactions
have been an important part of the detection process. This talk will
focus on measurements of neutrinoless double beta decay, which have
the potential to determine the Dirac/Majorana nature of the neutrino.
In particular, the EXO-200 and nEXO experiments will be highlighted.
After the experimental status and main results are discussed, two
techniques involving neutron interactions will be described. First,
the backgrounds from cosmogenic neutrons in EXO-200 have been studied
