Neutrino physics  

Neutrino physics (struttura)

Brief description

This research line involves different experiments. Borexino, at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory, has performed the first direct measurement of neutrinos from the interior of the sun and of antineutrinos coming from inside the earth. Now, by means of the use of (anti-)neutrino sources, it will shed light on the possible oscillation of a sterile neutrino (SOX project).

The search of sterile neutrinos is also an objective of Icarus, whose upgrade is under preparation at CERN.

The group is also committed in the next goal of neutrino physics: the determination of the mass hierarchy by means of the Juno experiment, based in China, that will measure reactor antineutrions in 20kt of liquid scintillator.
