Michele Weber - Sterile Neutrinos

RTG Seminar on Wednesday, June 26th 2019

The standard model of particle physics describes three massless (anti)neutrinos. Experimentally we have established that these neutrinos can oscillate between themselves and thus we know that they actually do have a mass, opening a window to study physics beyond the standard model. Furthermore, there are indications that maybe more neutrino flavours are needed to full explain all oscillation data — sterile neutrinos. In this talk I will summarize the experimental data leading to the proposal of sterile neutrinos, show the ongoing programs searching for them and the future prospects.
