Physics Division Seminars bring us speakers on a variety of physics related subjects. Usually these are held in the Building 6008 large Conference Room, at 3:00 pm on the chosen day, but times and locations may vary. For more information, contact our seminar chairman,

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.
