Add to Calendar 12/4/2017 1:00 pm 12/4/2017 America/Chicago ME/HE Seminar: "Discovery and Investigation of CEvNS: coherent elastic neutrino nucleus scattering" DESCRIPTION:

The coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CEvNS) process was predicted to exist over 40 years ago as a natural consequence of the newly-discovered neutral weak current.   It has the largest cross section for reactor and pion-decay neutrino sources (~1-50MeV) yet remained undiscovered due to the challenges of the low-energy event signature.   The recent 6.7sigma discovery at the ORNL SNS using a 15~kg CsI detector will be presented along with discussion of the future opportunities for precision studies of neutrino properties and interactions.
