Prof. V.M. Datar (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, India) "The India based Neutrino Observatory project"
May 31, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Indian effort to build an underground laboratory for rare processes is outlined. The flagship experiment, based on the 50 kiloton Iron Calorimeter, will measure atmospheric muon neutrinos and antineutrinos, separately, and will target the open problem of the neutrino mass hierarchy. Together with other experiments worldwide this will help address CP violation in the neutrino sector and this may help us understand why there is a preponderance of matter over anti-matter in the universe. The other experiments that are being planned are in the areas of: (1) neutrinoless double beta decay using a cryogenic bolometer of 124Sn (2) dark matter search and (3) a low energy accelerator for measuring nuclear cross sections of astrophysical interest.
