From θ13 to CP Violation in Neutrino Sector

12.01.2018 09:30 – 10:30

Abstract: According to the standard model of particle physics, neutrinos are massless like photons. In 1957 Bruno Pontecorvo, however, suggested that neutrinos are massive and therefore they oscillate. The discovery of neutrino oscillation is achieved by Super-Kamiokande using atmospheric neutrinos in 1998, SNO using solar neutrinos in 2001, and Daya Bay and RENO using reactor neutrinos in 2012. Thanks to the relatively large value of the smallest neutrino mixing angle, theta_13, discovered by Daya Bay and RENO, neutrino field enters a golden era to explore very challenging but important questions, such as "Is CP violated in leptonic sector ?" and "Is the mass eigenstate with the least nu_e (nu3), the heaviest or lightest and is this state more nu_mu or nu_tau ? " In this talk I will discuss recent results from RENO and introduce future Hyper-Kamiokande (Korea) neutrino experiment .
