ArgoNeuT & LArIAT: Towards Big Physics through Small LArTPCs

Dr Andrzej Szelc, University of Manchaster

Friday 19 February 2016, 1400-1500
Cavendish Colloquium Room

The liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber (LArTPC) is one of the most promising detector technologies in neutrino physics. It is the technology of choice for DUNE, the multi-kton long baseline neutrino experiment to be built in the US in the next decade. However, the precision of 3D and calorimetric reconstruction of these detectors allows exciting physics measurements even with detectors of almost table-top size. An example is the ArgoNeuT detector, the first LArTPC in a neutrino beam in the...

Tests of Lorentz and CPT violation with neutrinos

Dr Teppei Katori, Queen Mary University of London

Friday 11 March 2016, 1400-1500
Cavendish Colloquium Room

Lorentz violation has been shown to occur in Planck scale physics. Since neutrino oscillation experiments are natural interferometers, they may be sensitive to small space-time effect, such as Lorentz violation. The sensitivity is comparable to precision optical measurements (10E-19 GeV). Thus, neutrino oscillations may be the first place where we see Lorentz and CPT violation.
