From University of Cincinnati News, June 13, 2019: University of Cincinnati researchers search for subatomic particles called ‘sterile neutrinos,’ which could redefine the Standard Model.
From CERN Courier, March 8, 2019: Newly published results from the MINOS+ experiment at Fermilab cast fresh doubts on the existence of the sterile neutrino — a hypothetical fourth neutrino flavor that would constitute physics beyond the Standard Model. MINOS+ studies how muon neutrinos oscillate into other neutrino flavors as a function of distance travelled.
From Live Science, Jan. 1, 2019: One of the four is MiniBooNE’s search for a fourth neutrino, which could be a dark matter candidate.
From Forbes, Dec. 5, 2018: If there’s a fourth neutrino out there, Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Neutrino Program experiments will lead the way.
From New Scientist, Nov. 21, 2018: Elusive though it is, the sterile neutrino would be a real boon. It could make sense of experimental anomalies stretching back decades, and give us the first confirmed glimpse of physics beyond what we know. Subscription required.
From Cosmos, Nov. 28, 2018: MiniBooNE researchers have published a paper in the journal Physical Review Letters, reporting a possible trace of a fourth neutrino, an addition to the three of the Standard Model.
From WDCB’s First Light, July 8, 2018: In this 20-minute audio story, WDCB interviews Fermilab user and University of Chicago scientist David Schmitz about the search for a fourth neutrino.
From Scientific American, July 5, 2018: This editorial weighs in on the latest result from the MiniBooNE experiment. The author says that, while winning experiments may soon give us clarity, at this time there is no resolution to the sterile neutrino question.
