Probing New Physics in Neutrino Experiments
Physics Division Colloquium - 23 May 2008

Neutrino mass and mixing are amongst the major discoveries of recent years. The discoveries at Super-Kamiokande, SNO, and KamLAND have provided unambiguous evidence for neutrino mass and demand that we make the first significant revision of the Standard Model in decades. Many important questions remain: Are neutrinos their own antiparticles? What is their mass scale? Can we use neutrinos to search for CP violation? Precision measurements of neutrino oscillation parameters and the search for neutrinoless double beta decay are now underway to determine the pattern of neutrino mixing and their masses. I will report on recent results from KamLAND and describe the prospects for understanding neutrino properties with low-energy neutrino experiments.
