Particle Physics Seminar

Date: Wednesday 5th February 2003

Title: Neutrino Oscillation experiments in Neutrino Factories

Speaker: Dr Ken Long (ICSTM)

The status of measurements of neutrino oscillation will be reviewed. Following a brief review of experiments under construction of planned for the near future the concept of a Neutrino Factory will be introduced. The performance of a Neutrino Factory will be compared to other planned facilities and a brief overview of Neutrino Factory machine R&D will be presented, in particular the international Muon Ionisation Cooling Experiment will be described. Finally, comments on the possible future of Neutrino Factory R&D will made.

Particle Physics Seminars take place in room B02, Physics West, on Wednesdays at 1315, unless listed otherwise. Tea, coffee and biscuits are served at 1300.
