Title: Evidence against sterile neutrinos from the Daya Bay Experiment
Host: Robert Svoboda
Room: 285
Prevailing models of antineutrino emission by nuclear reactors do not
agree with observations. This discrepancy has been considered
possible evidence for neutrino oscillation to non-interacting, or
sterile, neutrino states. Although the existence of sterile neutrinos
would have profound implications, a variety of measurements by the
Daya Bay Experiment disfavor sterile models. I will summarize these
observations with a particular focus on the latest result: a precise
measurement of the antineutrino flux versus reactor fuel burn-up.
I’ll wrap up with a provocative question: does any compelling evidence
for sterile neutrinos remain?
