VIRTUAL MEETING ONLY: Neutrino Summer Lecture Series – Supernova Neutrinos

  • July 15, 2021, 10:00 am US/Central

Title: Supernova Neutrinos
Presented by: Dr. Georg Raffelt
Abstract: In this introductory overview, the physics of core-collapse supernovae is introduced with an emphasis on their role as astrophysical neutrino sources. The characteristics of the expected neutrino signal as well as detection opportunities are discussed, including the historical SN 1987A (23 February 1987), so far the only stellar core collapse where the neutrino signal was observed. The questions of particle-physics constraints and neutrino flavor conversion are touched upon.

The Neutrino University Summer Lecture Series will be held on Zoom every Thursday at 10:00-11:00am CT from June 3 to July 29, 2021. It is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students encompassing various topics in neutrino theory and experiment and could especially benefit those who are doing summer internships on neutrino topics. Please share this announcement with students (or just anyone) that you know who would be interested. More details, including the lecture line-up, can be found here:
