Departmental Seminar

Latest developments and challenges in neutrino physics

Professor Srubabati Goswami
Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India

Results from oscillation experiments have established that neutrinos have small but non-zero mass and there is mixing between different neutrino flavours. This signals that there is Physics Beyond the Standard Model. The remaining neutrino oscillation parameters to be determined by the current and future experiments are the neutrino mass ordering, octant of the atmospheric mixing angle and the CP phase of the neutrinos.  In my talk, I will discuss the current status of the neutrino oscillation parameters, the challenges in the precise determination of the parameters and the prospects of determining these in the future experiments. I will also discuss the possibilities of probing other physics scenarios beyond the standard model in neutrino oscillation experiments.

Professor Srubabati Goswami is an Indian scientist specialising in High Energy Physics, Astroparticle Physics, and Neutrino Physics. She is the first Indian woman to earn a Ph.D. in neutrino oscillations from the Science College, University of Calcutta. She did her research in the Physical Research Laboratory and Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics and later worked in the Harish Chandra Research Institute. She is a Senior Professor in Theoretical High Energy Physics in the Physical Research Laboratory. She is a fellow of Indian Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Sciences, India and Indian National Science Academy.
