Recent Results from MicroBooNE: Searching for New Physics in Liquid Argon Neutrino Detectors

by Sam Zeller (Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory)




Neutrinos are among the most abundant particles in the universe and they influence an enormous range of physics. Despite all that we have learned about these special particles, there remains a surprising amount of information we still do not know about neutrinos themselves. In addition, a series of neutrino anomalies hint at the possible existence of additional sterile neutrino states or other beyond-the-Standard-Model physics potentially occurring in the neutrino sector. Liquid argon neutrino detectors are particularly well-suited to explore such anomalies and expand our search for new physics. In this talk, the speaker will focus on MicroBooNE’s recent headline-making results and where these investigations might take us in the near future.
