Neutrino
A neutrino (/nuːˈtriːnoʊ/ or /njuːˈtriːnoʊ/, originally [nɛuˈtrino]) is an electrically neutral, weakly interacting elementary subatomic particle with half-integer spin. The neutrino (meaning ...

Nobel Prize For Physics 2015: How Neutrinos Saved The World
The prize goes to a discovery about the properties of neutrino particles that has saved us from worrying that Earth might end in an icy death. Astronomers called it the solar neutrino problem. It was ...
First Global Antineutrino Emission Map Highlights Earth's Energy Budget
The neutrino and its antimatter cousin, the antineutrino, are the tiniest subatomic particles known to science. These particles are byproducts of nuclear reactions within stars (including our sun), su...
Antarctica Scientists Confirm Existence Of Cosmic Neutrinos
Buried deep in the Antarctic ice, an observatory has spotted ghostly, nearly massless particles coming from inside our galaxy and points beyond the Milky Way. Finding these cosmic neutrinos not only c...
Fermilab Success In Catching Neutrino Guns 500 Mile Stroke
Scientists on the NOvA experiment saw their first evidence of oscillating neutrinos, confirming that the extraordinary detector built for the project not only functions as planned but is also making g...
Extreme Cold And Shipwreck Lead
Scientists on an experiment in Italy are looking for a process so rare, it is thought to occur less than once every trillion, trillion years. To find it, they will create the single coldest cubic mete...
Scientists Build Tabletop Instrument That Can 'See' Individual Electrons
Physicists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology report they've developed a small, tabletop particle detector capable of identifying a single electron emitted from a cloud of radioactive gas.Th...
X-ray telescopes find black hole may be a neutrino factory
The giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way may be producing mysterious particles called neutrinos. If confirmed, this would be the first time that scientists have traced neutrinos back to a b...
Subatomic particles give glimpse into sun’s core
For the first time, a subterranean detector has captured neutrinos generated in the main nuclear reactions that power the sun.
Proposed Neutrino Factory to answer one of the most fundamental questions of science
A European commission has recommended building the enormous, expensive Neutrino Factory to help answer one of the most fundamental questions in all of science.

MSW effect
The Mikheyev–Smirnov–Wolfenstein effect (often referred to as matter effect) is a particle physics process which can act to modify neutrino oscillations in matter. Work in 1978, by American physicist ...
Neutrino astronomy
Neutrino astronomy is the branch of astronomy that observes astronomical objects with neutrino detectors in special observatories. Neutrinos are created as a result of certain types of radioactive dec...
Cosmic neutrino background
The cosmic neutrino background (CNB, CνB) is the Universe's background particle radiation composed of neutrinos. They are sometimes known as relic neutrinos.Like the cosmic microwave background radia...
Faster-than-light neutrino anomaly
In 2011, the OPERA experiment mistakenly observed neutrinos appearing to travel faster than light. Even before the mistake was discovered, the result was considered anomalous because speeds higher tha...
