Particle Physics Seminar

Date: Wednesday 13th February 2002

Title: Neutrino Physics at NOMAD

Speaker: Dr. Paul Soler (Glasgow)

In this talk I will present the final results from the muon to tau neutrino (and electron to tau neutrino) oscillation search at NOMAD. NOMAD is also sensitive to muon to electron neutrino oscillations, relevant to the oscillation claim from the LSND experiment at Los Alamos. First results from this analysis will also be presented. Time permitting, I will summarise some of the other physics topics being carried out at NOMAD, which includes a measurement of Lambda polarization, charm production and searches for exotic particles. I will conclude with some results from a prototype silicon vertex detector installed in NOMAD, showing good potential for this type of technology to be used at future facilities like a neutrino factory.

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.
