From neutrino oscillations to the geo neutrinos (First results from the Kamland experiment)

Yuri Efremenko, University of Tennessee
Building 6008, Conference Room

Recently commissioned largest in the world 1000 ton anti-neutrino detector KamLAND started to produce the first results. It was optimized to find an answer on a long-standing problem, the lack of the Solar Neutrinos. High power of the detector allows us not only to confirm an explanation of a solar problem via neutrino oscillations, but also open the new horizons in geo physics via first detection of the anti-neutrinos generated by decays of U and Th chains in the earth.

Refreshments will be served at 2:40 p.m.
