COHERENT Collaboration First to Observe Coherent Elastic Neutrino Scattering

Thursday, August 3, 2017

The COHERENT Collaboration's 32-lb neutrino detector has observed coherent elastic scattering, before only theorized and something scientists have been trying to see for forty years. Read the team's paper "Observation of coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering" in Science here.

DukeToday interviewed COHERENT's Duke leaders Prof. Phil Barbeau, Prof. Kate Scholberg and TUNL's Grayson Rich. Read more details about their amazing discovery with quotes from the group in "World's Smallest Neutrino Detector Makes Massive Discovery." The ChronicleGizmodo, Inverse, Sci News, ScienceScience DailyScience News as well as Las Cruces Sun-News have also picked up the story.

Prof. Barbeau will present on the team's findings at the Duke Physics Colloquium's first fall 2017 event on August 30th at 3:30pm in Physics Building room 128. Please join us and hear about this fascinating news from the source.

Congratulations to The COHERENT Collaboration!
