Berlin Physics Colloquium at the Magnus House: Prof. Dr. Kathrin Valerius "Neutrino mass search"

In the Standard Model neutrinos are considered to be massless particles. A wealth of neutrino oscillation experiments, however, yields irrefutable evidence that neutrinos carry a finite mass, thus giving us a glimpse at physics “beyond the Standard Model”.

The KArlsruhe TRItium Neutrino experiment (KATRIN) aims to improve the neutrino mass sensitivity obtained through this method by an order of magnitude to 200 meV/c2 (90% C.L.). This talk will present an overview of the status of the major components and report results from the ongoing commissioning of the spectrometer and detector section.

About Berlin Physics Colloquium

The Berlin Physics Colloquium in the Magnus House was initiated in 1998 by the Physical Society of Berlin. The colloquium is organised jointly by the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt University of Berlin, the Technical University of Berlin and the University of Potsdam with the support of the Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation. It takes place on the first or second Thursday of every month, except in March, August and September.
