The Duke HEP neutrino group's research touches on astrophysical and cosmological topics, in particular on neutrinos from core collapse supernovae and other astrophysical sources.
Cosmology-related projects in the Duke HEP neutrino group:
- The Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST): a planned wide-field "survey" telescope that will photograph the entire available sky every few nights studying the nature of Dark Energy and Dark Matter.
Astrophysically-related projects in the Duke HEP neutrino group:
- Super-Kamiokande: a large water Cherenkov detector in Japan sensitive to astrophysical neutrinos over a wide range of energies
- Long Baseline Neutrino Experiment: the next-generation large neutrino detector in the United States
- HALO: a lead-based supernova neutrino detector in Canada
- SNEWS : the SuperNova Early Warning System, a world-wide network of neutrino detectors
Teaching and outreach activities take place at the Duke teaching observatory.
