Title: Unlocking the Secrets of Exploding Stars with Terrestrial Neutrino Beams
Host: Bob Svoboda
Room: 432
Abstract: Supernova bursts are some of the most impressive phenomena in the known Universe and are predicted to occur within our Milky Way galaxy at a rate of roughly one per 20 years. A core-collapse supernova releases ~3x1053 ergs of energy in the form of neutrinos over a time interval of several tens of seconds. This is equivalent to about 3,000 times the total energy that our Sun will radiate over its entire 10 billion year life span. Supernova neutrinos can provide us intimate details of the burst along with a variety of more exotic particle physics phenomena. Potential signals of supernova neutrinos in future experiments will be discussed, along with an opportunity to characterize supernova neutrino signals in liquid argon time projection chambers for the very first time.
