Speaker: Silvia Pascoli (Durham)
In the past fifteen years, a series of experiments has confirmed that neutrinos can oscillate between different flavours and have mass. These results are the first solid evidence for physics beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics, with profound implications for the Universe and the laws that govern it. Thanks to a broad experimental program, including accelerator- and reactor-based experiments and searches for neutrinoless double beta decay, we have just entered the “precision era” in neutrino physics. I will review the status of experimental results, their implications for our understanding of neutrino properties, and the questions that must be addressed. I will give an overview of the exciting experimental program that is underway and I will discuss how neutrino physics will help in opening a new window on new physics beyond the Standard Model.
