Neutrino Physics and Beyond with LArTPC Detectors

Georgia Karagiorgi, Columbia University, New York, NY 10027
Bldg. 6008 Large Conference Room

A tremendous amount of progress has been made in the field of neutrino physics in recent decades. However, the questions of (1) sterile neutrinos, (2) leptonic CP violation, and (3) neutrino mass hierarchy still remain and form three of the most pressing priorities in the field. MicroBooNE is the first of a number of liquid argon time projection chamber (LArTPC) experiments that aim to address those questions, to be followed by the planned Short Baseline Neutrino (SBN) experiment program and the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). This talk will discuss these experiments and pay particular focus to their ability to address these questions, as well as expand our understanding of fundamental particle physics and cosmology through additional rare-event and astro-particle physics searches.
