Neutrinos: Beyond the Basics

Series: Physics Research and Technology
BISAC: SCI055000

In this compilation, the authors first investigate the potential use of mineral lorandite from Allchar to estimate the Sun’s age.
A brief history of the discovery of neutrinos is provided, focusing on properties such as electrical charge, mass, and sources. A brief introduction to neutrinos in the standard model of particle physics is also provided, followed by neutrino oscillations both in vacuum and in matter.
Special experiments involving neutrino beams generated by accelerators are planned to study the properties of neutrinos on long baselines.
Lastly, within the context of a U(1)B−L minimal model, the authors discuss the effects of the anomalous magnetic moment and electric dipole moment of the tau-neutrino on stellar energy loss rates through the process of pair-annihilation.
