Joint HEP/Theory Seminar: Results from COHERENT

Tuesday, October 3, 2017 - 1:30pm

Speaker(s): 
Mayra Cervantes, Duke University

Predicted more than 43 years ago as an immediate consequence of the existence of neutral currents in neutrino-induced interactions, Coherent Elastic Neutrino-Nucleus scattering (CEVnS) had eludeddetection until very recently. I will discuss the recent results from the COHERENT collaboration that has made the first observation of (CEvNS), and its relevance in particle physics, nuclear physics and astrophysics. In addition I will discuss the path ahead for the COHERENT collaboration, our current and future physics program.
