Experimental Neutrino Physics at NCSU

Matthew P. Green – Assistant Professor

We build experiments to study the properties and interactions of neutrinos, elementary particles of the Standard Model which carry no electric or strong charge.  They interact only through the Weak Force and Gravity, the two weakest of the fundamental forces, and because of this they can travel light-years of matter without interacting.  Their ethereal nature makes neutrinos notoriously difficult to study; we need to go to great lengths (and depths) to probe their properties.
