B3 – Neutrinos in the Standard Model




Project Leaders

Caren Hagner (e-mail | group homepage)

Alessandro Mirizzi (e-mail | group homepage)


Abstract

The project B3 is focussed on theoretical and experimental aspects of low-energy neutrinos from artificial and astrophysical sources. The experimental part consists in the study of the background induced by cosmic muons in current low-energy neutrino experiments. The theoretical part is devoted to the flavor conversions of neutrinos emitted during a stellar collapse and in the early universe. The project will be expanded to study the low-energy neutrino project LAGUNA (European design study Large Apparati for Grand Unification and Neutrino Astrophysics), which is investigating to feasibility of large underground detectors for proton decay searches, the observation of rare galactic supernova and solar neutrinos.
