The quest to understand the small mass of neutrinos is also a quest to discover new particles.
For decades scientists have tried to find a way to measure the mass of the lightest matter particle known to exist. Three new approaches now have a chance to succeed.
Physicists take on the mystery of the missing (and extra) neutrinos.
Back when it was theorized, scientists weren’t sure they would ever detect the neutrino; now they’re searching for a version of the particle that could be even more elusive.
The question may seem simple, but physicists don’t yet know the answer. New measurements aim to change that.
DUNE will need lots of neutrinos—and to make them, scientists and engineers will use extreme versions of some common sounding ingredients: magnets and pencil lead.
