I'm Professor Phil Barbeau @psbarbeau of Duke University. We build fancy particle detectors.

Neutrino and Astroparticle Physics

Professor Barbeau's research interests are predominantly in the fields of neutrino and astroparticle physics. His active efforts are focused on (but not limited to) three major areas of research: work towards the first observation of coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering; novel searches for the dark matter in our universe; and searches for zero neutrino double beta decay. The unifying aspect of the work is the common need for new and creative detector development in order to solve some of the "hard" problems in low-background rare-event detection...

EXO-200 Reports Most Precise Two-Neutrino Double Beta Decay Measurement

We have reported a new measurement of the half-life for the two-neutrino double beta decay of 136Xe with the EXO-200 experiment. The measured half-life, 2.172±0.017(stat)±0.060(sys)·1021 years, is the most precisely measured half-life for any two neutrino double beta decaying isotope...
