NPA Seminar: Rachel Carr, USNA, "Possibilities for Neutrinos in Nuclear Security"

The potential for neutrinos as a nuclear security tool has been recognized for nearly 70 years – well before these weakly interacting particles were even detected. As an unshieldable emission from fission products, neutrinos are powerful messengers about the inner workings of reactors, nuclear explosions, submarines, and spent fuel. The flip side of that power is a serious practical weakness: as particle physicists have long known, capturing neutrino signals requires complex and often very large detectors.

NPA Seminar: Julieta Gruszko, The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, "New Results from LEGEND-200"

The search for neutrinoless double-beta decay is currently one of the most compelling challenges in physics, with the potential to reveal the origin of the neutrino’s mass, demonstrate lepton number violation, and provide hints of the mechanism behind the matter anti-matter asymmetry we observe in our universe. Detecting this ultra-rare process, however, requires us to build very large detectors with very low background rates. The LEGEND experiment searches for the neutrinoless double-beta decay of Ge-76 with hundreds of kilograms of detectors.

Spring 2024 EHS Orientation for Wright Lab Shops

Wright Lab will host two, identical 1-hour Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Shop Orientations on Friday, January 26 at 11:30 a.m. and Tuesday, January 30 at 3:00 p.m. The EHS shop orientation is offered each semester and is required to be taken once by anyone who would like to gain access and make use of the research and teaching shops at Wright Lab.
