Physics - Colloquium

The discovery of neutrino mass and oscillations have opened an intense field of study into the properties of neutrinos and their role in the Universe. The Daya Bay experiment has made precision measurements of antineutrinos over kilometer-long baselines and opened the window to the study of CP violation in the lepton sector. The search for neutrinoless double beta decay with CUORE will test if neutrinos are their own antiparticles and probe the effective Majorana mass of neutrinos. New experiments are getting underway to study neutrino oscillation at short and long baselines and to search for signs of new physics in the neutrino sector. I will discuss recent results and future prospects of neutrino studies with reactor neutrinos and nuclear beta decay.
