Physics Building, 202/204

This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

The Fall 2021 physics colloquium series will kick off with a talk by Mitchell Soderberg, associate professor and associate chair of physics in A&S.

Neutrinos are a curiosity among the zoo of known subatomic particles. Simultaneously both ever-present throughout our daily existence but of no apparent consequence to it. In this colloquium, Soderberg will explain what motivates researchers to study something so ethereal and describe the experimental landscape that has developed to answer the big questions about the role of neutrinos in our universe. In particular, he will focus on the upcoming Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE) that will study these particles with multiple detectors the size of the Physics Building located a mile underground in an abandoned gold mine in South Dakota.
